{recipe} green monster smoothies

Hi y'all! Remember me?

I have been running around like a mad woman lately.

Let's recap my schedule:

9:00-12:05 - Class
12:10-1:30 - Study, lunch
2:00-6:30 - Work
7:00-8:00 - Dinner
8:00-11:00 - Study

8:30-12:00 - Testing in Preschools
12:30-1:45 - Lunch/Study
2:00-6:30 - Work
7:00-8:00 - Dinner
8:00-11:00 - Study

Um. Death.
I need lots of yummy, healthy snacks and drinks to keep me going during the day.

The graduate student I work under in the preschool testing lab emailed me this morning and said I could have the day off because she double booked one of the schools we test at. Best. Email. EVER.

Now, let's talk about the GREEN MONSTER SMOOTHIE.

Oh, is it green. Lots and lots of little baby spinach flecks. 
Don't worry though, it doesn't taste healthy at all!

Green Monster Spinach Smoothie
Recipe by: Iowa Girl Eats
Serves 1

  • 1 frozen sliced banana
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup 0% Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or other kind of milk)
  • 4 cups baby spinach (or more, or less)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

It literally tastes like you are drinking a milkshake. SO DELICIOUS. 
Let me know if you are brave enough to try it out! :) 

Oh and by the way, I gave up some study time the other night and went to the Jimmy Buffett concert with two of my best friends. Sooo much fun. Here are a couple pictures!

Mermaids. Landshark. Nosebleeds. Jimmy.

All you need in life, really. 

I hope that y'all are having a great 2012 so far!

xo, Jen
