Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

by Meghann on March 30, 2015

Brooks recently challenge all of their RunHappy ambassadors to a Smoothie Challenge in the month of March. I had to stop myself from being too creative with my submission (I tend to be a little overzealous with challenges) and instead kept my smoothie relatively simple and delicious. This is actually a throwback to the Chocolate Cherry Smoothie my sister used to make when she had a blog. I just tweaked a few ingredients based off of what I had in the house.

Here’s what I came up with:

Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • About a cup of frozen cherries
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 5.3oz container vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • Milk

(clearly I’m a stickler for exact measurements – HA!)

Add cherries, spinach, yogurt, and almond butter to blender. Add milk a little at a time and blend until desire consistency is achieved.

Best enjoyed after a long and humid run.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did anyone else ever use the “I have green eyes” excuse to avoid getting pinched when they were younger? It was the one day of the year when green eyes came in handy. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget to wear green today. I wore my green top loud and proud in more »

Springtime

March 11, 2015

Hello, spring!   Compared to the rest of the country, Florida had it pretty mild this winter. It hasn’t been terribly cold, but it has been pretty cloudy, windy, and rainy the last few weeks. Thankfully the sun has finally broken through and there’s nothing but sunshine on the 7-day forecast – beach trip, anyone? more »

Today is March 2nd, a date that will forever be burned in my mind. March 2nd was my due date. A date that seemed so far away when we first discovered we were expecting last June and a date that still seemed so far away when we discovered we lost the pregnancy in August. The more »
