All ails can be fixed with a post-run smoothie. Don't you think?
Now, don't go turn your nose up at the tofu. You are excited. Let us gather our supplies. Water, apple, frozen spinach, carrot, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, avocado, cranberry-pineapple leftovers, tofu, protein powder.
The reason I bought tofu was because I wanted to amp up the protein without adding more protein powder. I've been doing some protein powder research and wondering how good it is for our bodies. More to come. So anyhoo, in comes the tofu. And don't forget, those dark leafy greens have some protein, too.
You may now start to sing...water, apple, and carrot
Strawberry love. Have you been reading Strawberry Shortcake books with your 5-year-old like I have? It's berry fun.
Aren't you getting happier by the minute??
A very ripe avocado my kids wouldn't touch with a ten-foot-pole. Another reason I love smoothies.
Add that tofu!
Still goin' strong on my sugared cranberries and pineapple!
We are ready, dude.
My smoothies are the funkiest of colors.
I'm telling you, I'm feeling goooooood.
Tofu, Fruit, and Green Smoothie:
1 cup water (more if needed)
1 med apple, cut
1-2 cups strawberries
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup cranberry/pineapple
1/2 cup tofu
1 scoop protein powder
I always make a big batch because everyone drinks some. Gregor has been taking a water bottle full, to work everyday. Works out if he has time, drinks his smoothie love, and is ready to go. He's lost 30 lbs. since spring! Loves when I talk about his weight :) He's lookin' mighty fine, just sayin'.
You could of course, make a smaller batch or make a big batch and have it for two days. You can also add whatever fruit you have. I never follow recipes, just dump in the fruit and greens that I have.
What do do with your peels and cores? Compost, of course. Or feed them to your pet pigs in the backyard.
Enjoy! May your weekend be full of smoothie love.
