Don’t let the word “spinach” scare you from making this delicious protein shake. It’s incredibly easy and delicious. Try this after a workout and not only will your muscles be thanking you, but so will your entire body! The spinach in the recipe provides essential vitamins like C, A and K, as well as the antioxidant, Lutein. The cherries in the recipe also add some much needed Vitamin B!
NOTE: This would be really fun to make for Valentine’s Day because it is pink, despite the addition of the spinach. The protein powder that you use may change the color slightly.
