The Green Monster Smoothie




Today I wanted to share one bad mutha of a smoothie recipe. Sometimes called "The Green Monster" because of the bright green color, this smoothie is chock full of nutrients. Sure, the color is a little scary, but I personally could not taste the spinach in this, which was great. Ready for the recipe?

The Green Monster Smoothie
Makes 2-3 Smoothies

1 banana, cut in chunks
1 cup cling peaches
1 (6 ounce) container vanilla yogurt
1/2 granny smith apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup juice of your choice
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves

1. Place the banana, peaches, yogurt, apple, juice and spinach into a blender. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping frequently to push down anything stuck to the sides. Pour into glasses and serve.

  1. I'm so excited to make this--I actually have all necessary ingredients. It not only sounds delicious, but quite nutritious. I've been sneaking spinach into everything these days, and I can't wait to sneak it into this smoothie! Thanks!

  2. I am typically against all things smoothie because they appear to be healthy and foul tasting. But this one? Mmmmm. I really even like the green color!
