Hey there and Happy Friday!! Dance party time! If you know me, you know I dance pretty much all day long…but especially on FRIDAYs…shout out to my Crossfit AEvitas crew who dances (ahem laughs) with (at) me at 5:30AM!
But seriously I do workout…between dancing and chatting with all my faves 🙂 Look at my strong friends 🙂
So I am here today with a quick and smooth recipe (pun intended.) I do not commonly recommend smoothies as meals or snacks as it eliminates a lot of the digestive processes (chewing and whatnot) and creates a sugar rush if too much is consumed!
However, being that I workout with a lot of hard charging ladies and gents who rush to and from the gym I wanted to give them something to fuel and hydrate their bodies post workout. It is colorful, delicious and nutritious…what more could you want?!
Disclaimer: I do not recommend that smoothies be a main staple of your diet but used when you need some added fruits/veggies in your life and are super active whether it be from your crazy 9-5 on your feet job or your amazing running/yoga/crossfit/ironman/jazzercise skills!
I hope you enjoy, please leave comments and questions below BUT wait before you go…PLEASE subscribe to our AWESOME (read: hilarious) podcast on iTunes called:
