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 :)
