This morning I was in dire need of a Super Bowl Detox.
I blame these:
And definitely these:
And we can't forget the (unphotographed) margaritas. Ouch.
A smoothie made with all kinds of nutritious stuff thrown in fit the bill perfectly for a little healthy pick-me-up after a night of indulgences.
Have you ever seen the so-called "Green Monster" smoothies? Well, this was definitely a Green Monster.
Don't freak out on me. It doesn't taste green....it tastes like a normal fruity smoothie. What makes it green is the big handfuls of baby spinach that add great nutrients, but add no flavor whatsoever.
The best thing about a smoothie is that you can make it however you want and use up fruit that's on it's last leg. In my case I had half a container of fresh blueberries that were about to go to Fruit Heaven, but instead got to become part of this scrumptious and nutritious smoothie. That's a much better way to go, if you ask me! (We'll just ignore the fact that they got pulverized in a blender...at least it was a quick death!)
Here's what my smoothie was composed of, but feel free to get creative with your own and use up what you have!
Super Bowl Detox Smoothie
1 banana (mine was frozen)
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup 0% greek yogurt
2-3 big handfuls of baby spinach
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!
