My favorite Green Monster SmoothiePosted: January 13, 2012
Good Morning!..I guess its not really the morning anymore because its almost 11 but whatevs
So yesterday after my Bodyrock day 2, week 2 workout (WOOF it was hard), I made myself a delicious Green Monster Smoothie using these ingredients
In the blender (well in this case my mini food processor because I don’t have a blender in my apartment..this WILL be changing soon) went 3/4 scoop vanilla protein powder (I buy mine from Trader joes), 1 tsp almond butter, 1 banana (frozen), 1 1/2 cup spinach, and about 1 cup vanilla almond milk
See those pretty green speckles?! I have to admit at first I was hesitant to try a Green Monster..because well drinking spinach in a smoothie is a little bizarre..but I’m telling you, you can’t taste the spinach at all and it packs so much nutrition in a smoothie!
I slurped this smoothie down in no time..and it kept me full forevsss..and by that I mean 3 hours
Make this NOW
