I was feeling particularly motivated to get to the gym this morning, hoping to squeeze in an extra training run. I was under the impression I had a race tomorrow only to discover… it’s next week. Oops! So thankful I learned that before I woke up at 5am and drove 40 minutes to get downtown. Hooray for sleeping in a bit tomorrow!
So instead of a logging those extra miles, I wanted to challenge myself with a more high intensity workout (HITT). After the usual bike and devotionals, I moved on to kettle balls, jumping jacks, pushups and… burpees! I love doing burpees almost as much as I love the name. Anyone else?
What better way to followup a super workout than with a Super Smoothie?
- 1 banana
- 2c almond milk (or more)
- 1c pumpkin puree
- 1 big handful of spinach
- 2t maca powder
- 2t spirulina (this will turn your drink green!)
- 3T cacao powder
- 1scoop vanilla protein powder (this is the one I use)
- stevia, maple syrup, or honey to sweeten (to taste)
- (optional) sprinkle with cacao nibs, or add 1T coconut flour when blending
Put everything in your blender and blend (simple, right?). I put mine in the fridge for a quick grab and go meal the next morning. If you’re drinking it right away, throw in some ice cubes!
What makes this green smoothie so super? It’s these super ingredients:
Drink up, go out, and enjoy a Super(food) Friday!
