Salad Smoothie Shake

Salad Smoothie Shake (serves one petite goonette)

8 oz. unsweetened almond milk (you can also use water, juice, soy milk or skim milk)

1 scoop whey protein powder (preferably vanilla without added sugar)

1 tsp flax oil

1/2 ripe banana (use frozen ripe bananas to make the smoothie even more like a milk shake)

1 handful frozen pineapple (or mango)

1 handful fresh or frozen blueberries

1 handful fresh spinach

Add all ingredients into a blender and kick it into high gear to combine.  I also like to add some of the following to mix it up from time to time:

  • Toasted almonds
  • Greens powder (available at Whole Foods)
  • Ground flax seeds
  • Any ripe berries
  • Any greens
  • Nut butters
  • Coconut milk (lite)

Mmmmmmmmm…..can’t wait for my next burger.

Tastes much better than a salad…I promise

We don’t mess around

In the midst of late night laughs, we joked about how much of my time is actually spent cooking for and feeding goons.  I have my very own goon husband, but many goon friends and goon family who also come to my table.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term goon…

GOON is a term of endearment.  In our home, a “goon” is anyone who loves eating, drinking, busting chops, and living life to the fullest.  For example, I watched several goons at a party last night who  each polished off at least five Philly-style subs and starchy sides, and then justified additional plates of meats  as “dessert”, not to mention the accompanying beers and wines to wash it all down.  These guys aren’t messing around.
