I drank a “Green Monster” as they are lovingly referred to in the blogosphere.
I call them a smoothie, but who am I to judge!
Anyway, see recipe below. This recipe has so many variations that the possibilities are endless!
My preferred “Green Monster”
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1 Large handful fresh spinach (Yup! Where did you think the green came from?)
- 1 1/4 cup soy milk (Can also substitute almond milk or flavored soy milk)
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon protein powder of choice (Or Nesquik – my personal favorite!)
- 1 cup filled with ice
Blend first 5 ingredients until smooth. Add ice to your preference and continue to blend to your preferred consistency.
I’ve seen lots of variations to this smoothie, some including instant coffee, some made to taste like an Almond Joy, etc. etc.
Try a variation of your own and Enjoy!
