Sometimes you get so busy a smoothie is about all you can handle.
Sometimes your job has a crazier week then usual.
You have appointments every single day after work and you've taken on a 5-day blog challenge with the most wonderful writer, Lisbeth Darsh, and some big appetites are coming over for dinner.
So, you find that you can still make up a great smoothie, throw a little high-quality protein in there and just keep going.
You find that you can do more than you thought you could.
So many times, having the energy to get things done simply lies in the choice to get things done.
When you find yourself in that spot, make this Green Protein Smoothie, like I do, and then get back to all the things that you need to do.
I put the following ingredients into the Vitamix in this order:
1 cup cold water
4 mint leaves
1 cup kale, torn from the spines
1 small banana
1 scoop vanilla protein
1 cup pineapple chunks, frozen
I put the lid on and pressed the Smoothie button.
Good things come to those who work hard.
