The Greenest Smoothie

Well guys.

I did that annoying thing I do a couple times a year even though I know it’s a bad idea.

Yep, I got bangs.

Whyyyy do I do this to myself?

It wasn’t even an impulsive decision. I spent HOURS on Pinterest convincing myself that bangs were a good idea. And then when I told my guy (who I love and don’t blame at all), he got excited and was all, “Like Heidi Klum bangs?!”

Yes! Make me look like Heidi Klum!

Guess what. I don’t look like Heidi Klum. 

So I’ll be pushing my bangs to the side for the next 6 months. You know, until I decide to do it all over again. Because I’m an idiot. 

Anyway. We got a ton of snow yesterday. The snow I’ve been waiting for! The boys and I sled until we couldn’t feel our hands and then we drank hot chocolate until we were warm enough to go back out.

It was awesome.

We also made smoothies because I’m trying to be healthier, you know. I used to drink a green smoothie every day of my life but when I started counting macros, I decided I’d rather use my carbs on Pop-Tarts. 

Priorities.

But now, I’m back into smoothies. And this one is the current fave. It’s spinach, pineapple, and banana! And the thing that makes it extra delicious: matcha powder! 

Matcha powder is green tea powder – it’s what those delicious green tea lattes and frappuccinos at Starbucks are made from. It’s delicious and perfect for green smoothies.
