I finally made a Green Monster smoothie! My last housemate arrived a few days ago and brought quite a few awesome kitchen gadgets with her, including a blender! I’ve wanted to make a Green Monster smoothie for absolutely ages; I tried to make one about three months ago, but our blender broke midway through and it turned into a mushy, bitty mess – basically banana water with spinach bits – not good. This one was lovely though, and you definitely can’t tell that there’s greenery in it, you just get a yummy sweet smoothie with all the goodness like iron from the spinach :)
I had mine as a pre-gym snack, but I’ve fallen so utterly in love with them that I’m planning on smoothies for breakfast quite a few times in the near future; this recipe’s just a basic one that I decided to try based on my tastes, but there are absolutely loads on the original green monster movement website, so feel free to let me know what combinations have worked for you, I’d be really interested to know if they’re nicer with nut butters or even kale in them.
We like it green!
