Spinach and Green Tea Smoothie

spinach green tea smoothieOk, so the recipe title isn’t very original and neither was Day 6 green smoothie. This was my very last bit of spinach. I had zero produce and no other add-in ingredients. With a snow storm looming I knew there was no way I was going to get to the store since I had to rely on my husband to get me there as my mother is borrowing my car.

I made due with what I had and replaced my lunch with this smoothie.

It was surprising how refreshing it was.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I really like adding the tsp of matcha green tea to my green smoothies. Adding such a small amount doesn’t really seem to alter the flavor but it does provide me with a little boost of energy which I really like.

I was worried that this was going to be gross and I was going to have to boot myself out of the challenge because I had nothing else ‘green-worthy’ in my house.

Pretty sure I was saved by the creamy almond milk and vanilla flavored protein powder.

Thank goodness I can keep on trucking.
