My favorite candy growing up was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. To this day I still have a soft spot for them. I get really excited around the holidays when they come out with their holiday shaped candies. I love the holiday versions because there is more peanut butter in each piece. The Christmas trees, eggs, hearts, pumpkins, you name it, I love them all!
I was craving a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup last night but I didn’t let myself go out and buy one. Yoga and Reese’s in the same night just don’t really go together you know? Instead, I waited until this morning and created this awesome green smoothie. It doesn’t exactly taste like a Reese’s but it kicked the craving.
And in case you all were wondering (which I’m sure you are!) I am SO stinking sore from yoga. It is taking all of my strength just to type this post out. My arms are jello.
Anyway, if you are in the mood for a Reese’s but don’t want to ruin your yoga workout by eating junk this is the smoothie for you! Cheers.
