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
- About a cup of frozen cherries
- Handful of spinach
- 1 5.3oz container vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
- 2 tablespoons almond butter
(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.
What has been your go-to smoothie recipe lately?
