After a nice, long, and unseasonably warm 5 mile run yesterday, I came up with this incredibly tasty recovery drink.  It’s Christmas in your mouth.

Below are the ingredients:

1 cup of coconut water
1 banana
1 Tbsp of cocoa powder
2 Tbsp of Almond Butter
1 Tbsp of Flax Seeds
1 Handful of Spinach
1 Candy Cane {or a few drops of mint extract}

Did I add cocoa powder, peppermint, and spinach {for the green-effect} in my Ninja just so I can say it’s a “Grinch Themed” bev?

Yes, yes I did.

Keeping in line with the holiday spirit, I’m quickly reminded of the two other smoothies that I created last year while writing the Marshall Rec blog…the Peppermint Mocha Protien Smoothie and the Cranberry Salad Protien Smoothie {yes, inspired by Grandma’s Cranberry Relish Salad}.

Another seasonal drink I’ve been interested in trying was recently posted on Fabletics’ Insta a few days ago.  Doesn’t this Gingerbread Smoothie looks to die for?

The ingredients:

1 cup almond milk
2 pitted dates
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1.8 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup ice

What do you guys think?

Any holiday smoothies/bev’s your currently crushing over right now?
