If you follow me on instagram, you’d know that we’re kinda obsessed with smoothies these days. Pretty sure I post one a day but we probably drink 2 a day due to the heat in Texas. Training in the heat means our smoothie consumption. Bring it on Summer! The Cotters are ready for YOU!
Yep. Needless to say, I’m all about drinking your veggies. And since today is national DRINK YOUR VEGGIES day, I thought I’d share a few of my “drink your veggies” smoothies.” We add in Barleans Berry Greens to smoothies (the easy way to add in greens) but I’ve also added in some REAL veggies in a few of these smoothies. Sneaky, eh?
Take this smoothie for example. It’s Vanilla, bourbon, and banana. I used almond milk, vanilla whey, vanilla bean, bourbon flavoring, frozen banana, and……….SQUASH. Yep, makes it thicker. A little steamed butternut squash.
This one is a favorite. Frozen Berries, cocoa powder, Barleans Berry greens, almond milk, protein, and BASIL. Basil is a veggie, right? Or both herb and veggie. Bonus points! Benefits of basil—>go here!
Remember this one I posted about last week? Mango Peach Caramel with…..AVOCADO! It’s green, it’s a veggie or a fruit. I still can’t remember. I say both! you?
And last but not least… the ultimate REFRESHER smoothie. I used Silk Coconut milk (I bet lauren approves) in this smoothie along with Cinnamon, cucumber, Vanilla Protein, Ice, and Basil. Real recipe is linked here. Gosh this one is so GOOD!
Bonus: This one doesn’t have veggies in it, but it is a very GOOD post workout smoothie. Cherry Coconut Banana Cocoa Smoothie. Frozen cherries for anti-inflammatory. Coconut and Banana for potassium. Unsweetened cocoa powder for anti-oxidants, and then add in your favorite protein powder for muscle repair. BAM!
