Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie

Guess who whipped out the food processor this morning? Seriously LOVE that thing. I was at the gym, doing bicep curls, and all I could think about was the carton the delicious, fresh strawberries I had sitting in my fridge, and how good they would taste in a smoothie!
My workout was a quick mile on the tread, increasing in speed by .2 from 6 mph to 8.5 mph every 30 seconds.
Then I moved on to a full body weights workout. I did 3 sets of 10-15 reps of each exercise:
-assisted pull ups
-hanging leg extension
-inclined dumbbell chest press (15 lb. dumbbells)
-lung twist + 6 lb. medicine ball
-squats + 20 lb dumbbell
-tricep extensions (20 lbs.)
-wide legged squats + 20 lb. dumbbell
-abdominal pull downs (I’m not exactly sure what this one is actually called, but it’s essentially like an “inside-out” sit up. Use your imagination :)
This is what I ate after my workout…
Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie
-5 large strawberries
-1/4C vanilla nonfat yogurt
-1/4C vanilla almond milk
-1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I use designer whey)
-2-4 ice cubes (depending on how thick you like it!)
Method: Combine all ingredients in a small food processor or blender and mix for a minute or so!
Mmm Mmm and Mmm. Topped off with a little shredded coconut makes perfection!
Anyways a little update on my life..
This week is my last week of classes! I have a few finals this week and I will officially be a college senior after next Wednesday night! YIPPIE!! Thankfully my exams are spread throughout a few days; I think I would just about lose my $#!t if they were all on the same day! The parents are coming up for the sisters graduation next weekend. I can not even believe she is graduating, I am so proud of her :)
My plan for this summer is to spend some quality time in Milwaukee at the Mom and Dad’s house once school gets out. I am so ready for a mental break. While I am at home my main plan of action = creating new recipes, exercise, and SLEEP. I’ll head back up to the cities part way through June for the best summer job ever….Can you guess what it is?? 
Off to go to the mall write a paper.
What is your favorite kind of smoothie?
