|Spinach: great in salads, not my favorite in juice form.|
|Banana weighs down the spinach...and covers the flavor|
The Green Monster was my gateway smoothie, but I have since found a favorite way to make a Green Monster Smoothie. It is the Chocolate Green Smoothie. For a large single serving it is:
One cup chocolate almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla flavor Greek yogurt (also tasty with strawberry flavor)
Two handfuls of spinach
One frozen banana
Layer the ingredients in the blender as listed and blend until smooth.
I could drink this every day. EVERY day. If you want to be all cutesy you can drink it from a mason jar with a striped straw. I don't have those. Sorry. Mine goes in the souvenir cup we got at the zoo with the fattest straw I could find at the store. It still tastes good. Give it a try. "You can't even taste the spinach!" ;) It's also a great post-workout drink.
