Hey there! Happy Saturday!
It is a happy Saturday for me indeed! My mom is in town-woohoo! My mom, my sister, and I are getting ready to head out to our local Art & Wine festival. With a name like that, how can it be bad? I’m super excited for a fun day!
Since I anticipate a bit of wine, most likely some not-that-great-for-me festival food, and definitely some champagne in our future, I started the day off right. After a great spin class, I came home and made this protein packed and ridiculously delicious smoothie. I’m now ready to conquer the day (champagne glass in hand of course)!
Next time cantaloupe goes on sale, stock up. I just discovered freeing cantaloupe recently and I have no idea where I have been all these years because it is awesome! It freezes so well and is perfect in smoothies. I put it in my green smoothies too, but this one is all cantaloupe all the time.
Packed with protein from greek yogurt, protein powder, and nonfat milk, this is the perfect after workout smoothie. A sprinkling of chia seeds in the mix as well as on top add your daily omega-3′s and a teensy bit of texture to this smooth, creamy, smoothie.
Grab the champagne. Pop it in the freezer. Make this smoothie. Devour. Pop the champagne. Happy Saturday.
