Green Monster and Exciting News!

I’ve taken note of the refreshing way Leah starts off many mornings. She prepares a Green Monster today I thought I’d give one a whirl.

I find this to taste just as refreshing as it looks, it was icy cold and super smooth. I couldn’t taste the spinach at all, pretty much ended up being a banana smoothie but with the added benefits of spinach. I could see myself making this again as an afternoon snack, but I don’t see green monsters becoming a regular staple of my diet. I do feel quite full after slurping my last drop, I wonder how long it will last?

  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 banana, broken into chunks and frozen
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 cup skim milk

    Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.
