Alex’s Green Super Smoothie

Every morning I start my day with a Green Super Smoothie! To make my smoothies I use the NINJA Master Prep blender and I love it! It has worked great for me for 3 years now and I highly recommend it. My daily smoothies vary depending on what I have on hand. Below is an example of the one I made for myself this morning.

My Green Super Smoothie really gets me fueled for the entire day and my workout! Yesterday’s cardio consisted of a quick two miles on the treadmill which I begin at 9 minutes and go 1 beat faster for every quarter mile in the second mile. I typically run around a 9:20 mile so this gets challenging for me. I followed that up with 13 minutes on the elliptical at level 8. I really hate the elliptical but force myself to do other machines every once in a while.
