I’ve really been into spending time in my kitchen this week. I don’t know what’s gotten into me. Maybe it’s all the excitement that Summer is over and Fall is around the corner. Tonight I took one of my teacher trainee’s led primary series class. It was an hour and a half of breath and sweat. By the time we got to Savasana all I wanted was a shower and a smoothie. As soon as I got home I whipped up this little ditty and boy did I wish I made a double batch. I couldn’t not share this one!
Combine in a Vitamix or other high power blender (in this order): 12 whole fresh strawberries, 1 whole banana, 1 cup almond milk, 2 tablespoonsful local honey, 1 tablespoonful cacao powder, 2 tablespoonsful dried goji berries, 1 tablespoonful chia seeds, and if you’re in the mood for some dairy and extra protein, 1/2 cup low fat greek yogurt
Strawberries have tons of Vitamin C to help your immune system, and cacao and gogis are loaded with antioxidants. I’m trying to get extra healthy over the next couple weeks so I can get the most out of David Keil’s Mysore intensive and workshops at Lehigh Valley Yoga this weekend and David Garrigues’ Mysore intensive in the Outer Banks. I love getting back on track!
