Chocolate Milkshake... Sort Of

I began this week the way I begin most weeks. I woke up Monday morning, made coffee and walked with my mug to the water to watch the sunrise and meditate. Then I pulled out my notebook and wrote my goals for the week. The list was long but I was excited to tackle it all and now that it's Friday, I can look back on my list to see what I've accomplished. I'm proud to admit I've completed roughly 30% of my list. Ha! Yes, proud & laughing. One of the items on my list was to give myself a break and remember I'm human, I can only do so much. It seems that at least I accomplished that. This week felt good & calm, something I haven't felt in a while, which I guess you wouldn't know because I haven't been blogging. And I haven't been blogging because I've been insane... but working on not being that insane busy person anymore no matter how much is on my plate. Vicious cycle.

Another item on my list was to blog three times this week: my Monday Mantra, an update on my running & a recipe. Monday Mantra: check. My running post: nope, oh well. My recipe post: was going to blow it off in favor of other pressing matters, but I've passed a new favorite recipe on to a few friends this week and decided I really want to share it with you as well. Nothing complicated, just me new favorite greens shake that tastes a whole lot like a Chocolate Milkshake.

I started making this recipe about two weeks ago as a way to add more greens to my menu and as a quick way to get calories in after a run. Now I'm completely addicted and crave it everyday. So here it is... enjoy!

2 Cups of Spinach
1 Cup of Almond Milk (or whatever sort of milk you desire)
1/2 Banana
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Protein Powder (optional; I've been adding when I'm using this as a complete meal on the go)

Blend & drink while it knocks your socks offf!

And now I can cross another thing off my list ;)
