Spinach, Oatmeal & Almond Milk Protein Smoothie

FullSizeRender[1]Happy Friday! It’s almost that time of year again… The holidays! They are just around the corner and you know what that means, endless treats, baked goods, cookie swaps…. I can feel my pants getting tighter as we speak! It is so easy to fall into bad habits this time of year. The weather is colder and you know it will be at least 6 months before anyone is going to see you in your bathing suit. Let’s get a jump start on those New Years resolutions and stay healthy through the holidays this year! I love this smoothie for my pre or post workout meal. The oatmeal helps make the shake more substantial, plus the spinach adds to your daily intake of iron, vitamin C, fiber… all the good stuff! I like to blend this smoothie up at night before bed, put it in a mason jar for the AM. Just shake it up and enjoy the next day!  There is no better way to start your day then with a healthy meal to boost your metabolism.

  • 2 Cups fresh spinach

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • hand full of ice
