Blended Iced Green Protein Coffee Shake

Good morning and Happy Thursday!!

This morning, I got in my 5am workout and I couldn't feel any better than I do.  I recognize that my days are best after I make time for a workout.  Hmmm, why do I ever stop?  Laziness....  I have to get that under control!!  It is a well known fact that exercise releases endorphins which helps boost moods and lowers the rate of depression.  FREE ANTIDEPRESSANT!!  In fact, research has shown that exercise is an affective treatment for mild depression.

But it can't stop there.....

I need to fuel that workout with a GREAT MEAL!!

Because I workout so early, I tend to not be so hungry after.  I have learned that it is important to consume soon after the workout between 30 minutes to no longer than an hour.  So, I go for my POWER BREAKFAST in a cup!

Here it is......

Blended Iced Green Protein Coffee Shake

1 cup Spinach
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 scoop Whey Protein
1/2 Banana
2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp Instant Coffee

Blend it up and VOILA!!!

An awesome tasting protein packed Go-Go shake!!  The coffee helps me to keep moving ;)  Happy Thursday!!
