Tried and true! This is one of my favorite protein smoothies. 1 c. water 1 scoop protein powder I have two different protein powders that I use. I like this one because it has chia seeds, flax and hemp in it.
1 c. frozen berries 2 cups spinach I get the big tub of spinach from Costco. If I am not going through it fast enough I will freeze it. Next best thing to fresh. This frozen berry mix from Costco is awesome! It is very sweet so there is no need to add any sweetener.
If I am using fresh spinach I don't need more liquid than the 1 c water. If I am using frozen spinach I tend to need a little more liquid. I will use unsweetened almond milk (only 35 calories a cup) or coconut milk. I just add as needed. If you like your smoothie richer you can use this instead of water.
Put it in your Blendtec blender(if you don't know about Blendtec you need to!) in that order. Don't forget a dash of cinnamon. This makes a plenty big smoothie. I can make two servings out of it most of the time.
Deli-sh! Super healthy. It is around 250 calories. ENJOY!
21 Years! Now THAT is a tradition! By far my favorite weekend of the year. Kari asked if she could be in charge of the party gifts. She gave each of us these darling bracelets along with a sweet poem about friendship. I will think of my besties every time I wear it. Thanks Kar! Food! Food! Food! Oh wow! We ate yummy food. 4AM! Yes we can talk and laugh and giggle and eat until 4AM! It took me a week to recover. I feel that one of the greatest blessings in my life have been my friendships. I treasure and admire each of these girls. I look forward to year 22!
A little preview of our 21st Annual Christmas Party!
Commentary by Missy, "This one is funny because MJ looks like she's going to beat Julie up and Julie is talking her out of it. Sandy is pissed and way too cool for all of this crap. Sari is going to beat the camera up. Aubree is disgusted with all of us. Kim isn't sure if she is liking what Julie is saying. Beckie is talking to herself. Rachel thinks something is either real funny or real sad. Shan decided to rest her eyes until we are ready. Kari is telling Jill a funny joke."

We got to the airport and realized we had not gotten a picture together. Haggard as we were, we snapped a quick, in the car picture. I insisted! I love my BF and instantly missed her as I drove away from the airport. If only life were perfect and we lived next door to each other!
