Clean Eating Series: Green Smoothie

Nom, nom, nom!!!
 Hi babes!!! Well, after being sick for way too long, I decided I need to take better care of myself. And that starts in the kitchen! This green smoothie is DELICIOUS. Seriously. I'm very picky, and you honestly can't taste the veggies in this, it just tastes sweet and yummy. MUST TRY!!

 My awesome friend and culinary guru, Lindsay, from Weeknight Bite gave me this recipe and I'm OBSESSED. I'm so enthusiastic about it because I honestly never thought I'd find a green smoothie that I not only like, but I crave. Here's the recipe (I made tiny twists to it):

1 banana (Lindsay does half, but I need a lot of potassium right now)
1 cup (or handful) of spinach (you can also do kale)
1 tbsp Chia Seeds (I used blueberry flax from Trader Joe's)
Dash of cinammon
1 pitted Date (I subbed a dash of shredded coconut instead)
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (Lindsay says you can go 1/2 cup or so)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Arbonne's + a scoop of their fiber powder)
BLEND!
 After pouring the smoothie out of my NutriBullet and into a cute mason jar, I topped it with a pinch of shredded coconut!

There you have it! I hope y'all enjoy this recipe and try the smoothie, make sure you go check out Lindsay's site for tons of delicious and healthy recipes!! This is a fashion and beauty blog, and a large part of being beautiful and in style is taking care of yourself from the inside out! Until next time...
