I don’t know where the time went yesterday but I feel like I got nothing done. I didn’t workout. I was going to run yesterday but never found the time. I did however buy a handheld water bottle for running! As I mentioned a couple days ago I was wanting one for runs in the heat so that I don’t dehydrate as fast. I decided to go to the local Manhattan Running Company to see their selection. They had both of the brands I was considering but for size and price I ultimately went with the Nathan brand. Not only does it fit my hand well but it has a nice pocket for phone and keys. I can’t wait to use it!

So failed at getting any food photos except for my smoothie. As you may have noticed, I’m really in cahoots with the No-Bake Almond Joy Cookies. So I was inspired to make a smoothie version of it. It didn’t quite reach the taste and texture I was going for it was still pretty tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cups Almond Milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp Plain Greek Yogurt
  • A handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Almond Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Chocolate Chips

I would recommend chopping the chocolate chips up in a food processor first. Otherwise they sink to the bottom of your blender and don’t get incorporated very well into the smoothie. Chocolate chunks at bottom of blender = sucks.

I think I was trying to go for more of a milkshake consistency but that just didn’t happen. I don’t have ice cream. It was still tasty though. Also, I think regular vanilla yogurt might be better than greek yogurt. Maybe sometime I’ll revamp the recipe and try some other concoctions.
