downsized_0131001034aI have been reading Oh She Glows for almost a year now, and have always read about Angela’s green monsters. To be honest they always sounded a little gross to me, haha, but with the new year I have been trying to embrace my healthy lifestyle change in a deeper, more meaningful way. Not just to lose weight and get skinny, but to really get healthy and love and appreciate my body.

And so I tried the green monster…. I have had one every morning for 2 and a half weeks now, and I am getting addicted! I am still experimenting a little to find different flavors I like, but the one I LOVE and keep going back to, is my chocolate strawberry shake!! It tastes to me just like a creamy chocolate-strawberry milkshake, and WAY too good to be healthy!

4 cups raw spinach
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1-1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1/4-1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup cold water
