Tips & Tricks for our Tropical Chocolate Protein Smoothie Recipe
- Invest in a heavy duty blender; I’ve used a Blend Tec for well over a century now and I love it! It’s powerful enough to blend frozen fruit and vegetables smooth, smooth, smooth!
- I prefer using frozen fruits and vegetables in my smoothies so they have a thicker consistency.
- Freeze extra fruits and vegetables as they are just beginning to turn over-ripe; I use gallon plastic zip top freezer bags to toss them in.
- Freeze fresh produce to use later- I find they last just fine for up to 4 weeks. ie: spinach or mixed salad greens, baby carrots, cucumbers, banana’s broken into four pieces, sliced/cored apples and pears, extra berries, peeled/segmented oranges and clementines, grapes, and the list goes on!
- Extra nutrient add in’s are always good try adding: vanilla and chocolate protein powders, dry oats, a small handful of nuts, peanut butter, flavored yogurt or kefir, and more.
Super food add in’s: gogi berries, coconut oil, avocado, acai or cacoa powder, chia or hemp or flax seeds, etc!

A fantastic Fit Friday on a gorgeous Friday day. This summer my schedule is very cyclical, a week started off with chemo and followed up with a lot of sleeping before going into a non-chemo week that lets me run and play with the kiddos a bit more. My sleeping weeks also require a lot of stretching, I never would have thought being inactive would make me so sore.
This soreness and followed up stretching is my influence for Fit Friday this week, I am going over some of the top stretches I have found for a sore back and tight hips.
- Supine Four Square; I like to do this one in while still laying in bed.
- Four Twist; drop that four square to the side and get a nice easy stretch through that spine
- Downward Dog; this was a pose I hated until I had a yoga instructor help with a couple of tweaks and suddenly I found the reason for this pose and my body actually likes it.
- Childs Pose; easy low back stretch that feels fantastic
- Fire Log Pose; a great seated stretch for both my low back and hips
- Legs Up The Wall; this was always a favorite after a long run and I have found its usefulness after a long sleep as well.
These six stretches have been a life saver over the last few weeks.
