MJ’s Green Monster


Posted by Angela | Posted in Reader Recipes | Posted on 03-09-2010

I’ve always loved smoothies and Spinach and when I heard about the Green Monster smoothies is on the Weight Watchers site (I’m currently trying to lose 100+ pounds) I thought that this might be a filling and nutritious addition to my daily routine.

Here are my 2 favorite recipes:

1 frozen banana
5-6 frozen or fresh strawberries
2 handfuls or cups of fresh Spinach
1 Tbs ground Flax seeds
1 Tbs wheat germ
3 sprigs Fresh Mint
1 scoop Soy Protein Powder
1 cup skim milk

I loved the taste, could taste the banana and strawberries with a hint of the fresh mint.

2 handfuls or cups fresh Spinach
2 scoops Soy Protein Powder
large handful frozen mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries)
couple of dashes of Pure Peppermint Extract
1 Tbs wheat germ
1 cup skim milk
1 packet Stevia

This was a last minute decision tonight to make a Green Monster, was out of bananas, had no fresh mint and forgot the Flax. I found it needed the Stevia to sweeten things a little for me.

Congrats on your weight loss choice. I too have to lose 120 llbs, and with 86 gone, i am having a very difficult time getting rid of the rest. I am going to try these Green Monster recipes, and hopefully it will make a difference.
