The Green Latifah & My Morning Routine
So this smoothie is inspired by the 'Green Latifah' I had at Barry's Boot Camp once..It has turned into not only my FAVORITE smoothie but Marcus's as well. If you know me, you know that I workout almost every morning at Core Power Yoga.
Right when I wake up I have a cup of coffee, 2 eggs over medium with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning and half an avocado OR Quaker Oatmeal. When I get home from class I always make a smoothie...Lately we are hearing about the intermittent fasting diet and how great it is..my daily 'meal plan' is quite the opposite of intermittent fasting! Ha! I am no health expert but I have found what works for me and maybe you too.
- 2c almond milk
- 2 scoops of protein
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 3c spinach
- 2c frozen mango
- 1/2c ice
Mix all of the ingredients into a in a vitamix/blender/ninja. Start by adding the liquids and end with the frozen items! I have a vitamix and blend on the highest speed for 1 minute. If your consistency doesn't seem to be mixing well then add a little bit of water.
Note: This makes 2 servings. I keep one in the freezer for the next morning!
