“Ice Cream” Smoothie

The brunch sliders were a hit! Everyone seemed to enjoy them and had a good time trying the different sandwiches. The first ones to go were the peanut butter and banana and double strawberry sliders.

Ryan and I had a great time hanging out with our friends and enjoyed the vast array of food. I filled up a plate with one of our sliders, French toast casserole, quiche and a bit of fruit salad.

Unfortunately we couldn’t hang out as long as we would have preferred because Ryan had a soccer game early this afternoon.


We arrived home with just enough time for him to change and head out the door. I stayed behind with plans to eventually get in a workout of my own.

Between snacking a lot while making the brunch sliders and eating my fair share of grub at the brunch, I definitely felt a food baby in my belly and was feeling less than motivated to go for a run.

I changed into my workout gear, waited about an hour and turned to Twitter for some motivation.

After tweeting that I wasn’t in the mood to run on our way to the brunch, I received a slew of motivational tweets including one from Allison who encouraged me to run for those who can’t. Talk about a good reason to lace up my sneakers!

Eventually I leashed Sadie up and completed 5 miles. We ran most of the time, but took a few walking breaks when we passed through the farmer’s market downtown.

Once we arrived home, we headed out to the backyard for several rounds of fetch (this dog has never-ending energy!) while I soaked up some sun.

By the time 3 p.m. rolled around, my hunger returned and a smoothie sounded perfect!

I made myself a vanilla banana and honey smoothie that honestly tasted like ice cream!

Into the blender went:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 tbsp. honey, plus more on top

It was awesome!!! I think I will be making 5,000 more of these to satisfy my craving for sweets during the Lenten season.

Time to shower! Ryan should be home any minute and I smell like a dirty sock.

    I just tried this and YUM!! It came out super thick though, so I think next time I’ll just use one frozen banana. 🙂
