Green Monster

I know, it sounds scary! And you might think it looks scary. Or you might say it looks nasty. But trust me, this green monster smoothie is quite tasty!

I can’t remember where I first saw this, maybe on Pinterest. Turns out there’s an entire Green Monster Movement!

Here’s the recipe I made:

1 Cup Almond Milk

1 Container Greek Yogurt – 6 ounces

1 Sliced Frozen Banana

1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter

1 Tablespoon Flax

2+ Cups Spinach

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend. I poured the mix into a martini glass just for fun.

My brother suggested adding some protein powder to give it even more boost. Definitely going to try that next time.

    1. I was REALLY skeptical too when I first saw it. Spinach in a blender? with peanut butter? and greek yogurt? I don’t know what compelled me to try it, but it was so tasty! I think it’s a great combination of flavors and textures. I would be happy to make one for you in July!

  1. I think it looks rather appealing – and the ingredients sound yummy – though i may of had to add a spoonful of honey to sweeten it a bit – honey is after all a very benefical food stuff. It makes me think of spinach soup too, of which I could just fancy a bowl!

  2. I just saw this recipe on pinterest too & pinned it in my tasty treats board. I froze the banana this morning but have to get spinach before I can make it. I am definitely adding a vanilla protein powder to give it some bulk & substance. Thanks for confirming that it’s tasty!
