My Green Monster.

I've made several different green monsters, and I absolutely LOVE them.  This is the recipe I'm currently using:

Two handfuls baby spinach
1/2 apple, cut into chunks
1 banana
1/2 cup chunk pineapple
Handful blueberries
Splash of vanilla almond milk
(The pictures also have a kiwi in it, but I won't be using the kiwi again--too many seeds.)

Then, just put it all in a blender and blend until smooth. Super easy! And absolutely delicious!

You can pretty much use whatever other fruit you have lying around-- strawberries, mango, oranges, etc. I also plan to add in some flaxseed, but I just haven't bought any yet. And maybe some protein powder, since there's practically none in here already.

Anybody have any tips or great add-ins for the green monster?


  1. Hmmm! Apples, YUM! My recipe is pretty standard-- just 1 cup of almond milk, 2-3 cups of spinach, a small banana, 2 strawberries, and ice.

  2. I haven't tried a green monster yet! I'll have to try your recipe :) Everyone keeps talking about them!

  3. everyone seems to be jumping on the green monster train, maybe i need to do as well

  4. I love green smoothies so much! Do you also add ice? I love the texture when I do. I have tried juicing lately as well but my juice doesn't taste nearly as good!
