I started to name this smoothie the P-Mac Attack, but decided that would have no SEO advantage nor would it describe anything about the drink. Therefore, I went with Mixed Berry Smoothie.

Why did I want to name it the Mac Attack? Because I created it as a post run energy drink. After I run I feel invincible, like I can attack and conquer the world…after a nap of course!

I have teamed up with some other blogging buddies for a Weightloss or Healthy Wednesday series. I’m not really looking to lose weight so I prefer Healthy Wednesday because we all can be a little more healthy! I’ll share running and exercise tips and my running stats each Wednesday along with a ‘Skinny’ recipe for you to try. This week I’ll share Healthy Wednesday: Skinny Mixed Berry Smoothie!

Here are my running stats through the end of August this year

Total miles: 734.57

Total duration: 288: 20:43

Total calories burned: 99,564

Total workouts: 297

Longest run March 17: 13.2

My stats for August 1, 2013 – August 31, 2013

Total workouts – 29

Total distance (miles) – 109.8

Calories burned – 9,603

Goals for remainder of 2013 =

  1. Mileage – 100 per month
  2. Increase distance again to possibly run another half marathon. I say possibly because it may conflict with a day we have to be out-of-town. I’ll train toward that goal though.
  3. Eat better – more nutrient-packed meals and snacks
  4. Increase strength

I created this Skinny Mixed Berry Smoothie to help me with #3!

After a recent run, I started to think about a post workout drink that would be nutritious and low in calories. Most of the smoothie recipes I’ve seen have a banana in them. I no likey bananas, well, I like bananas; I just don’t like bananas cooked or in anything. My sweet Mom used to make me a very special Banana Pudding that didn’t have bananas in it!! 🙂 Mother’s are wonderful! Anywho, I came up with this convenient nutritious smoothie that will be great as a snack or after work out recovery drink.

The great thing about this smoothie. You mix it up, freeze it in individual portions, then all you have to do after a run or workout is pop the frozen portion in a blender and mix with milk. It’s healthy and much cheaper than buying the packages of smoothie mix.

    I wish I ran! I need to start exercising, but I can never seem to find the time! Maybe this smoothie would get me in the mood! Looks good!

      Thank you! I used to only run 3ish every day and decided to bump it up. I do enjoy the feeling I get from running, my husband totally doesn’t get it.

    Mmm! That smoothie looks tasty! I love your health goals! I’m looking to lose a lot of baby weight from having two in under two years and I love getting inspiration from others! We just started a link party for people to share their heal / fitness advice and to seek advice from others. This would be a great post to link up at Tips and Tricks Tuesdays! Such yummy, healthy recipes! Hope to see you there!

    This looks awesome – I just pinned it! We are big smoothie fans in this house. My husband usually makes them. I had no idea you were a runner…so am I! Thinking about running a half marathon, but I kind of go with the flow with my running…I never plan ahead. Not necessarily the best plan these days if you want to run fast, but I more do it for enjoyment now than anything else.

    {Melinda} I was making smoothies before smoothies were cool! 🙂 Always happy to find new recipes. Mixed Berry smoothies are my favorite. My “go-to” recipe? Organic Mixed Berries, Stoneyfield French Vanilla Yogurt, Flaxseed, Coconut Milk, Water and Organic Raw Honey (1 Tbsp). Delicious! 🙂
