Apple Cinnamon Green Smoothie (+ Link-Up!)

#7daygreendrink #GSC7day #realfoodeats

This is the green smoothie that I tried out on a "Standard American Diet eater". It wasn't a pre-meditated act. :p Just a friend happened to be stop by my house right after I had just mixed this one up!

At first, he said "No, thank-you!"  but . . .

He gave it a try! And, guess what?!

Here's the exact quote, "It tastes like candy!"

He even called me back once he got home to ask about the ingredients. :) Yes. This is what's it's about people. Showing people that healthy foods can and should be delicious!!! Made my day. =)

Alright, now that you're dying to know what's in this delicious "apple pie" in a glass :p here's the recipe!!!

Apple Cinnamon Green Smoothie 
1 medium crisp pink lady apple (organic, if possible, as apples are on the dirty dozen list)
1/2 banana
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon chia seed
2 cups spinach (or more!)
1/2 cup ice (or more, depending on how thick you like it)


Life of late has been fairly busy!!! Having friends over 2-night to play games and hang out. :) Should be fun!

I'd laid off running for a bit but I'm back at it now. It's funny how you don't realize how much you love something until it's gone for a while!!! {which was only about a wk, but still!} Ok- wait. I admit, I mostly love the "after feeling". Pushing myself hurts but the reward is worth it! Don't you agree?

And, yes! I got called in for the birth and it went AMAZING. Sarah- you rocked it. So proud of you! You and Josh make a dynamic team and watching you guys work together makes me only hope I can be 1/2 as brave one day.

Actually, I just got back home from the birth just a little bit ago so after I finish up this post I'm heading to bed as I'm dead tired . . . :p

Music, school and work pretty much explain the rest of my life at the moment, though!

What have you been up to of late? Any exciting wk/end plans?

If you're a green smoothie challenger- LINK-UP BELOW and share your recipes / reasons / experiences! Keep it raw and real. :) 

NOTE: Fresh Friday peoples- I am taking a 1 wk sabbatical but will be back next week!!!

Life as of lately.... studying/doing homework.
It's finals week.
Life of a grad student sucks this week.
Happy Friday!

aww your green smoothie challenge looks so yummy! I'm bummed I wasn't able to join up because I was traveling for work, and obviously unable to make smoothies, but I have a lot of inspiration for the future! I've never put apples in a smoothie but now I totally want to!
