My first green monster!

If you haven't heard about green monsters, you are clearly not a food blog addict. I've been intrigued by them for some time now but never seem to have time for smoothie making in the morning. After a very hot walk home from work I decided a nice cold smoothie would work just fine for part of dinner.

My green monster was tame by most standards:

A cup of spinach
1 (frozen) banana
A handful of frozen strawberries
Soymilk - I didn't measure but just added it as I needed it.

It wasn't as pretty as some of Angela's, but wow, was it good! First of all, I promise you cannot taste spinach. It just tastes fruity and creamy. At the same time, the spinach definitely adds something...I have made the same smoothie without the spinach and this was better by a long shot. A great way to get greens in your diet without even noticing them (once you get past the colour!)


  1. MMM. This looks good!

    Here's a quick breakfast recipe for you. I'll be honest, I haven't actually tried this yet, but it was in my new Chatelaine and looks healthy/yummy/Super fast!

    Take one whole grain tortilla. Spread a tablespoon (or two, heh) of almond butter on the tortilla (LOVE almond butter!). Top with sliced bananas OR sliced apples. Wrap and enjoy!

  2. Oooh, I want to try a green monster!

  3. Doooooo it!

    And thanks for the breakfast tip loony (ha). I've heard of doing that with bananas but never thought about sliced apples, I will have to try that!
