Leftovers, green smoothies, and weddings – oh my!

Dinner last night was broccoli, mashed potatoes, and more prosciutto ravioli that I’d frozen from my last batch. I didn’t think this would be possible, but it was even better the second time around. Check out those big beautiful garlic chunks on top! I also poured the garlic infused sauce over the broccoli – so amazingly good!

It was another cold morning in L.A. today. I ran some errands this morning and had to wear a sweater and a scarf! But, in typical California fashion, an hour and a half later it was sunny and warm. But the crisp fall morning did prompt me to buy some sweaters at Target, which I will post about later! When I got home from errands, I was hot and craving my favorite refreshing snack (and sometimes breakfast) – a green smoothie. What makes it green, you ask?

Spinach! Lots and lots of spinach! If you haven’t added spinach to your smoothies before, try it. You can’t taste a thing, I promise. All it does is turn your smoothie a gorgeous shade of green…

This was so refreshing I drank it too fast and got a brain freeze. 🙂

In the mix was:
– an almost full blender of baby spinach
– 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
– 1/2 cup of Oregon Chai Original Chai Tea Latte concentrate (this adds so much flavor! It’s amazing!)
– 1 frozen banana
– vanilla protein powder
– 3 ice cubes

I make lots of different variations on this smoothie (there are endless mix-in opportunities, just like yogurt and oatmeal!) so I’ll post those as I make them.

On another note, my best friend in the whole world just got engaged!! I’m super excited and have obviously already bought these…

So don’t be surprised if I might have some wedding-related fashion/planning posts, just for fun!

What are your favorite smoothies to make?
