Post-Run Greens!! :)

17 Feb

Oh February… you are indeed a confused month!  I hate this weather.  Such a tease!!!  One minute it’s 50, the next it’s 10 and windy.  What gives?  Well yesterday it got to a whopping 42 degrees mid-day and I decided to get out and absorb some vitamin D.  I need to remember to stop taking time off from running because damn it makes me out of shape!

Post-Run Greens Smoothie

Serves 1 (or 2)

1/4 cup light coconut milk

3/4 cup water

1 jar Earth’s Best Organic prunes and oatmeal baby food… yes that’s right, I put baby food in there :)

2 heaping cups raw organic baby spinach

1/4 cup organic frozen pineapple

1 small organic banana

20 drops of minerals

3 ice cubes


Put all the ingredients in your vita-mix according to manufacturers directions and blend!

    Hahahaa your title could easily be misread as “Post Greens Runs”. Which is entirely possible with too many greens, too fast!

    When I went on a green smoothie kick mine turned green! (Sorry if that’s TMI – we used to keep a blog called if you want to read about two newbies stumbling into the world of a raw foods diet!)
