Sunday Smoothie: Spinach Banana Protein Smoothie

Had a great weekend hanging out with my sister Zandria! She drove down from D.C. on Friday night. We made smoothies, worked out Saturday and Sunday, went to the Church Hill Irish Fest, played croquet in our front yard, ate dinner at Can Can and made brunch for our friends and family. Pretty amazing weekend if you ask me! Sunday brunch included a vegan apple crisp…promise to post a recipe soon!

Here’s me at the Irish fest on Saturday. We went up to the cemetery at St. Johns Church but we kicked out soon after because we weren’t supposed to take beer up there. Whoops! (pic courtesy of my sis!):

On Saturday and Sunday I made the same smoothie combo for pre-workout breakfast…spinach, green grapes and banana. The grapes add a great sweetness!
