I dont know about all of you, but the second it starts to warm up I start craving refreshing smoothies! This smoothie is packed with protein thanks to About Time Protein Powder (25% off code: fantasticallyfit) and full of flavor! And for those of you who think I’m crazy talking about the weather warming up, its been 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Los Angeles (sorry non-California people!). But, even if it is cold outside you should definitely pin or save this recipe for a warm day! :)

And yes these are rare photos of yours truly by the wonderful Jodee of jodeedebes.com
