Have you had an Oscar the Grouch living at your house this week. We have! All of the holiday fun this week . . .parades, bbq’s, fireworks (actually sparklers for the under 4 age group) and the lack of needed rest and the schedule that goes along with it has brought the Grouch to our house. If your house has been invaded by Oscar or Olivia the Grouch this week then this smoothie just might be what you need to re-energize in order to keep up with the grouchy, grumpies and end your week and your workout with a smile.
Oscar the Grouch Smoothie
1 scoop of Chocolate Whey protein powder (I am still looking for an organic whey to use in smoothies. I am going to order and try Tera’s Whey Fair Trade Organic Dark Chocolate Whey Protein asap)
8 oz of Stonyfield Organic Milk (I used whole milk for a little extra creaminess)
1/2 cup Fresh Vermont Strawberries
1/4 cup organic blueberries
1 Fair Trade banana
1/4 cup local organic spinach (hoping to have some spinach from my garden soon)
Blend all ingredients using a handheld Cuisinart Mixer. Pour into your favorite pint glass and enjoy. Hopefully this smoothie combined with an invigorating run in the fresh air and early bedtime for the kiddos will rid your house of the Grouch.Concocting Turning green and grouchy Smooooothie!
