Green Monster

How has your Wednesday been going?? I am loving this whole summer thing ;)

Today I wanted to show you how I make my Green Monsters (spinach smoothies).

Get ready for some tummy lovin’ goodness!

NBN’s Green Monster

  • 1 cup Milk of choice (I use regular skim milk)
  • A very large handful of spinach (washed first…it’s very dirty)
  • Half a banana
  • 4-5 medium strawberries (or fruit of choice…I usually go with sweeter ones like strawberries, pineapple, and peaches)
  • 2 Tbs gluten free oats
  • 1/3 cup crushed ice

Blend everything together on “liquefy” for about 20 seconds.

Enjoy the yummy, whole natural goodness!

*I add oats for extra protein and really, you can’t taste them…I like the texture and kind of cookie taste they add :)

*This make a very large serving (about 3 cups!), therefore if you are making it as a snack, you may want to put less milk or fruit.

Needless to say, it’s delicious and I always get a good burst of energy from it!!

P.S. Check out my new “Finding Balance” tab!! This is my personal opinion on what works for me, but it may not work for you. As always, consult  a physician before attempting any new life style changes. :)
