Chocolate Strawberry Mango Protein Smoothie

Guess who finally finished her 11-lb. bag of frozen strawberries from Costco!? (I got it before I started medical school. o_o)

I’m not a morning person, and somewhere whilst making my protein after-workout smoothie in my foggy morning stupor, I used a spoon to shove the strawberries that weren’t blending in a downward fashion.

Well, this genius also left said spoon in the blender and forgot about it.

In case you’re wondering, no one died (other than my blender, anyway :[ ). My new one makes life a whole lot more convenient for me, so there’s a plus. :O

I’m also really glad that my friends look out for me. :D

They tell me when there’s free food on campus that I don’t know about. <3

I rarely put ice in my smoothies since I don’t get along too well with brainfreezes, but the fact that I’ve been using frozen fruit also helps. :P It’s already cold! No ice necessary.
