Smoothie Season

It's getting to be that time of the year again -- smoothie season! (Not that the snowy winter keeps me from blending up some chilly goodness, of course). For [nearly] Wordless Wednesday, here are two newly-devoured smoothies from the week, complete with a serving of greens.

This Chocolate Strawberry Green Smoothie was so thick that it was like eating ice cream, except without all the unhealthy fats and loaded with protein and spinach. Click here for the recipe.











I woke up with a desire to do something with the bag of frozen cherries lurking in my freezer, and so this Cherry Vanilla Smoothie was born. There's spinach in this one, too! Find the recipe here.

  1. Mmm they look delicious! Yesterday I followed Blue Diamond's advice and made a smoothie w/ almond milk, frozen strawberries, half of a banana, and some pineapple juice. It was pretty pink and oh so refreshing!
