If you’re anything like me, it takes tons of handwork and effort to eat healthy, get my protein, and still have everything taste good…and that’s on a good day, not on a ‘I’m so busy I forgot if I even had breakfast this morning’ day. Luckily, thanks to numerous sites and my own tweaking, there are some smoothie recipes that are perfect for ladies on the go and don’t have time to stop and prepare a meal. They have protein, spinach, fruit and still taste amazing. So, whether you are dashing off to class, a high powered meeting, or working your a** off to get the house clean for a play-date, one of these smoothies will give you the little boost you need to get you through your day. Once again, this does NOT serve as a medical diagnosis or professional opinion and, if you are trying something drastically different or have never dieted before, we highly recommend speaking to your doctor before making any dramatic changes to your routine!!!

“It’s Ok – the Spinach is with Me” – This smoothie will definitely keep you full, satisfied, and will not taste like Spinach. Thanks to it’s friends Adonia Frozen Yogurt and Peanut Butter, the Baby Spinach can easily slip into the background of this party and not clash with any of the flavors. This smoothie basic is filling, packed with nutrients, and provides the leading lady it serves with energy to go through her day with grace and poise.
1 cup (or more if you choose) fresh baby spinach
1.5 to 2 servings vanilla frozen yogurt (Adonia Greek Frozen Yogurt has 9g protein per serving, so I use that brand when I can)
