Katie’s Green Monster

I had heard of putting spinach in smoothies before, but thanks to Angela’s blog became encouraged to begin having one every day (sometimes twice a day!).  I’ve been doing so for a month now, experimenting with lots of different add-ins.  It’s hard to go wrong with these smoothies! They are THAT awesome.
I’ve even completely replaced my morning coffee with GM’s and feel better than ever!

My Basic GM recipe:
3 big handfuls of spinach
1c unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp ground flax
1 small-ish banana
1 scoop “Vege-greens”

Cantaloupe with almond butter is also FANTASTIC!

Thank you, Angela for the inspiration!  I’m completely addicted! 🙂

That sounds yummy! And what a great picture of it too!

Sounds delish!

I’ve been dabbling in the GM’s myself. Looks like a lot of you have switched over to spinach, I’m still using kale!
I’d love to try the Neal Brothers products!! The cheese sticks look amazing!!

Haven’t tried a Green Monster yet…think I’ll pick up some spinach and see what I can come up with.

Love the Neal Brother products!

I’ve never tried a Green Monster but I think this one sounds like a good one to try. Thanks for the recipe.

I love the GM’s with peanut butter. Well, I just love peanut butter in general 🙂

I also love putting nut butters in my GMs. I find they deepen the flavour, I probably wouldn’t be able to identify it if it was just handed to me, but it does wonderful things to a GM!
