Spinach...in a smoothie....really? Yup! And it works!!!
Reading through these awesome blogs I have been seeing so much about "Green Monsters" that I had to check it out for myself. So, I went on over to http://greenmonstermovement.com/ and after looking at lots of interesting recipes for smoothies with Spinach (or Kale) in them...I decided to give it a go!
Yesterday was my first attempt...it was as follows:
Approximately 2 cups of Spinach
1 1/4 cups of Skim Milk
1 Tbsp Flax
1 cup frozen Blueberries
...and after taste testing...I added:
a drop of Vanilla
a dash of Honey
It was actually pretty good! I didn't take a picture yesterday...but it was kind of an ugly grey color!!! Didn't look so pretty, but tasted pretty good!
For today's "Green Monster", I made the following:
1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
1 cup Spinach
1/2 cup Skim Milk
1 1/3 cup frozen Summer Berries
1 Tbsp Natural Wheat Bran
Pretty tasty I must say!
Here is a picture of todays conconction:
It doesn't look very green today...it was more of a pale green. I would probably add more spinach next time I make this one, but was trying for a smaller serving size today!
All in all I would have to say I'm a fan of "Green Monsters"...who'd a thought it!! If anyone out there has been thinking about trying one of these....go for it! I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
Now what will the next one be....?? If anyone out there is reading this, please tell me your favorite "Green Monster" conconction!
