Monster Smoothie

1 cup almond milk
1 packet vanilla protein powder {Advocare}
1 cup green seedless grapes
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 banana
2 large carrots
1 cucumber, peeled
3 1/2 stalks celery {good way to use the small ones}
1 orange, peeled
1 green apple
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup frozen peaches
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Place in blender in order listed leaving out chia seeds. Put on the Frozen dessert setting and let machine run until program finishes. Add in chia seeds. Turn to variable 1 then slowly work your way up until the seeds have begun to mix in. Enjoy!
I decided to make my own smoothie this morning using everything I had. It was amazing! I was a little nervous that I would be wasting A LOT of food if it wasn't good. Thankfully that wasn't the case :] I do wish I had spinach or lettuce on hand to add in. It's just not a juice or smoothie without spinach! This made 8 cups which I mostly split with Frank {I took a little more!}.
