green monster madness
Have you ever heard of a green monster? Not all green monsters are created equally 🙂 Which is why Angela created this page for green monster smoothie recipe submissions!
No, I am not talking about this green monster. I am talking about a smoothie! This is the kind of smoothie that some may think tastes like a plant but I think it tastes yummy!
Into Jasper’s green monster smoothie goes:
1 c. fresh spinach
1 c. almond milk
1 scoop brown rice protein powder
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. greek yogurt
Does it taste like a plant? No, I do not think it tastes like a plant. And though I do not go around licking leaves or chewing tree bark, I think I can vouch for the green monster recipe tasting like food, not plants.
How often should I drink a green monster smoothie? Well, I am not a doctor, I am not a registered dietician, I am not a clinical nutritionist…I will say that you can eat green smoothies as a fun morning treat, an afternoon snack or as a meal that would replace any proper nutritional dish (consult your doctor).
You can throw all sorts of ingredients into your green monster smoothie! I would not suggest real plants in your smoothie, however.
Instead of spinach, sometimes I use raw or steamed kale! Even Justin Bieber chugged a green monster smoothie before his 2010 Madison Square Garden sell-out!
Back to the green monsters!
However you take your green monster just don’t forget the banana! Happy Friday to you lovely people!
Here’s me chugging juice, not a green monster! ..okay, happy friday! – Jasper Naomi
