The Tangy Monster

Holy cow where did this week go? The second half of the week just flew right by and cannot believe it is already Friday. She Rocks Fitness apologizes for not posting any pieces the past couple of days. I have seriously been running around to meetings, new workout classes (Which I am so SORE from!), and organizing my life. And I also made a trip to the Gap to return some clothes in exchange for some skinny jeans. I have to say that Gap jeans are the awesome, especially when they are $70.00. All good stuff! Today is Friday, which means it is also Smoothie Friday! Woop Woop! 🙂

Last Friday, I posted the Purple Monster smoothie and found that even though it was delicious, filling, and loaded with all the important nutrients, it wasn’t sweet enough. Blueberries are loaded with nutrients, but not very sweet. So this week, I tried it with raspberries and BAM, it was delicious. Raspberries have a 50% higher antioxidant activity than strawberries and are loaded with Vitamin C and manganese, riboflavin, folate, and niacin (just to name a few 😉 ).

Ingredients:

  • 2 c spinach
  • 1 c raspberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 T almond butter
  • 1 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 c Fage Greek yogurt

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend away. This is also a great smoothie to have after a long run or workout at the gym. Trust me, your body will thank you later.

Don’t forget to set your clocks back on Sunday! Next week is going to be filled with some great topics including: fall recipes, the new workout class I’m hooked on (The one I am so sore. Let’s just say the class started with a competition of climbing a rope!), and some other fun random facts. Make sure to check back and have a wonderful weekend.
