Green Monster Smoothie

A vitamin packed smoothie, perfect for breakfast or lunch on the go!

Ok, so I’ll admit, first time trying a green monster smoothie… and quite honestly I was not prepared to like it!

I mean, spinach in a smoothie?? Even though green may be my favorite color, it sounded way too healthy even for my taste!

Well now it’s my go-to!! SO good, you can’t taste the spinach at all!

I was the first to test it out, and not bad! Good actually! All I really tasted was the peanut butter and banana, nothing else really stood out. I could get used to this! They all agreed, even my picky teenager thought it was good!

So, why should you try a GREEN MONSTER?? Vitamins!! A, C, K, iron, fiber, folate, lutein, magnesium, potassium, protein and calcium! Give it a try and see what you think!

Variations:

You can really make this so many ways, add flax seeds, add protein powder, throw in blueberries, etc. Start with this basic recipe and play around with variations. Give it a try!

  1. Question. Why is this 3 points on WW Green, yet 7 points on both Blue and Purple?  Btw, I love MANY of your recipes. 

  2. Wow! That’s really good. I usually do my smoothies with berries, but this is a nice change. Thank you.
