kind of a funny name, huh?
apparently, it's a pretty common name for a green smoothie
and to be honest, the name doesn't sound very appealing (to me anyway)
but i've always liked the color green
and i like the idea of a smoothie packed full of healthy ingredients
('cause any mom will agree that you sometimes get so caught up in feeding them well,
that you forget all about feeding yourself well...)
so i figured i'd give it a shot
the nice thing about these "green monsters"
is that there's no recipe
which means you get to customize it
using whatever you have on hand
or whatever your favorite ingredients are
and it can be as easy or as complicated as you want
...and i like the sound of that!
so here's my take:
a bit of a tropical twist,
ridiculously quick / simple
and of course, bright green.
Green Monster Smoothie
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 1 lime: juiced and 1/2 zested
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
1) throw all ingredients into food processor or blender and blend until well mixed
2) pour into a tall glass or mason jar and enjoy
it's that simple.
