My first Green Monster!

As promised, here is a review of my first ever Green Monster smoothie!!! I used the most simple recipe from called "The Virgin Green Monster"I didn't photograph the ingredients, but here is the recipe directly from the site linked above:

  • 2 cups organic spinach (I didn't use organic...)
  • 1-1.5 cups milk (I used light soy)
  • 1 tablespoon flax
  • 1 banana
  • ice
Place the ingredients into the blender in the following order: 1) flax, 2) spinach, 3) banana, 4) milk

I put them in that order, plus added the ice right away. I also didn't use a regular blender, I used my magic bullet.
This was delicious! It was so delicious that I had it three nights in a row and ran out of soy milk. :-( I am sweaty and gross in this picture because I enjoyed my green monster right after an intense cardio workout on the Nordic Track!

I'm planning on incorporating a lot of these into my daily routine! They are so healthy, and besides the flax, are all Power Foods!

How do you enjoy your green monsters? Do you have a favorite combination?
