Best Post-Workout Shake Ever!

Lately my 5th meal of the day (salmon and spinach) has been coinciding with my post-workout shake (whey and water).  In an effort to "shake" things up a bit, and out of inspiration from Jess who is always raving about her Green Monsters (smoothies that have been turned green usually due to their use of spinach), I decided to experiment. 

I don't have a fancy name for it yet (Green Gym Monster?), but I promise you this is delicious!

1 scoop whey (I use either vanilla or cookies 'n cream)
1 cup chilled chai tea
2 hand fulls baby spinach
1/2 tsp stevia
1/2 cinnamon, nutmeg and/or pumpkin pie spice 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Ice cubes if desired

Blend everything for a couple minutes (takes a while for the spinach to become smooth).  This shake is both tasty and filling.  Enjoy :)

  1. Mmmm that sounds amazing!!
    I think you should call it Green-Spiked Vanilla Chai smoothie :)
    I would recommend adding in a frozen banana (I know you can't have fruit, Tess) because it adds an amazing smooth texture to it!
