Thirsty Thursday

It’s Thursday, drink up!

Have I mentioned that I love smoothies? It’s the perfect little meal in my opinion. You’ve got so many options for creating just about any flavor you want, you can tailor it to your specific needs (like post- workout, energy-boosting, meal-replacing, sweet tooth-satisfying, etc.), and they are packed full of nutrition that is easily absorbed by your body. Who wouldn’t want a smoothie?

This recipe is a protein-packed banana smoothie. There are a ton of variations and additions for it, too, so be sure to look here for some inspiration and ideas to tweak this to just your liking!
