I made my first Green Monster this morning. Take a look at the website if you aren’t familiar with Green Monsters. There are many different recipes to try. I made the Virgin Green Monster.
The ingredients are:
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 Tbsp Flax Seed
- 1 banana
- 1 cup milk
This is what it looks like when its all blended together.
Pretty intimidating looking! I have to admit I was a little scared of what this was going to taste like. I smelled it first, but all I could smell was the banana. So here goes nothing!
And the verdict is:
Its really good! I couldn’t taste the spinach at all, it just tastes like a banana smoothie. I’m glad to find another nutritious breakfast. I’ve really been wearing out the yogurt and granola lately. Now I can mix it up with a Green Monster sometimes.
I ordered some Amazing Grass last night, because I’ve been curious about it lately. Tim and I sat down together and looked at the website and decided to buy a few sampler packets to try and see what we like. I think these will be good to add into my Green Monsters.
