Happy Memorial Day!
I hope most people are able to take a little break and catch some rays today 🙂
I just got back from a short run, and will hopefully be spending the rest of the day chilling by the pool with Perry and his family. it’s rare for Perry to have a holiday off, so we are going to enjoy this extra time together before he goes back to school.
Before I head out, I am going to sipping on a Key Lime Pie Smoothie to fulfill my morning protein needs. It is so light and fresh, with the smooth creaminess of key lime pie. The lime juice and sweet whey powder create the perfect tart balance. I love that the oats mimic the crust and provide some extra fiber. You could also throw in a handful of spinach to get a bright green color, and some added nutrients!
KEY LIME PIE SMOOTHIE
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 frozen banana
2 Tbsp instant oats
1 scant Tbsp Lime juice
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (whey gives the sweetest creamy taste)
Directions: Add the oats to the almond milk and let sit in the blender for a few minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
Also, chicken coop update:
The boyfriends (Perry and David) helped us tremendously (in part because they are both over 6 feet tall) in constructing the chicken pen yesterday.
Claire and my dad put the finishing touches and screen door on this morning.
Now we just have some little touch ups to do before it is totally completed!
