Monkey Business {a Smoothie Recipe}

Moody skies that morning...
This is not going to be a pretty recipe. Let me just put that out there. It was made in a hurry, when I was tired and hungry and cranky and... well, lets just say that I'd "had a morning" (who hasn't, right?) and didn't get breakfast until after walking Gwen to school. I was feeling as moody as the skies that morning, and I needed something quick. While I could have have made my normal green smoothie just as easily as this... well, frankly, I didn't want green. I wanted treat. I thought it was a big enough accomplishment that I didn't immediately reach for some of the cake that was residing in my pantry, so this was a reward smoothie! And it really is a treat, though their is no added sugar, so it still is far better then reaching for that cake!

Monkey Business Smoothie

1/2 frozen banana
1/2 green apple, cored and quartered
1 c milk
1 Tbsp whole milk plain greek yogurt (I love Smári, which is super thick, super high in protein, and way lower in sugars then any other brand I've seen)

1 1/2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Pop all ingredients into your blender and blend until everything is broken down and combined.
Then blend a little more because the coconut likes to be tricky!

2. Take it outside and drink it with your dog and your flowers... and maybe feel not so cranky anymore.

Enjoy, friends!
