The Roommate Protein Smoothie

Hi hi hi,

So I am super excited today. As a vegetarian who doesn’t eat fish or eggs, it is super difficult to get enough protein. I am not super strict about my protein intake. However, not having enough energy and stamina after workouts (I do HIIT cardio and yoga) and speedy recover puts a real damper on the whole fitness brigade.

Not gonna lie, I kinda fell off the train. I needed to get back into the groove of things, but I need my healthy and clean eats to taste good. I mean the whole eating protein overnight oats that taste like shit for breakfast in the name of keeping up with your bodybuilding.com routine (you know what I am talking about, fitness enthusiasts) is out. I work a lot, I get tired, I want my food to nourish me as well as taste good. I wanna look forward to it, ya know? Not like “shit another protein shake.”

So one day my roommate made an impeccable smoothie. It looked amazing, tasted amazing and had all healthy ingredients. It was creamy, thick, cold and a mix of sweet and tart. It basically tasted like “nice cream.” She told me I could put protein powder in it and it would still taste good. YOU GUYS…it doesn’t get ANY better than this for a vegetarian. Like really…thank me later.

SOOOOOOO…without further ado..I present the Roommate Smoothie! I kid, it’s a berry-greek yogurt-spinach infused-insert more blogger jardon and a mason jar protein smoothie!

 

Blendy blend until you get a nice creamy consistency. Most likely will be reddish purple in color. The greek yogurt makes it a bit tart. Berries and splash of OJ make it sweet. All in all it tastes like sorbet/nice cream. Super healthy, super filling and roommate taste test approved (by all three of us roomies).

You should see our fridge. We all buy the same ingredients and put it in our respective areas for the week. And end up making the smoothies at the same time. Better than late night ice cream during our bollywood binges, right?
Happy Tuesday,
xoxo Pri
