Not your coffee shop’s smoothie!

Standard

Want to learn out how to turn this…

Into this…

Then you need to visit the blog Green Monster Movement ASAP!!!  I found this website about a year and a half ago and my first thought was, “spinach in a smoothie… EWW”!  However after making myself this little drink I was shocked, not only was it good, it was DELICIOUS!

Now this colorful drink has become my breakfast daily for the last month.  The wonderful taste isn’t the only bonus, this drink is also FULL of  vitamins A, C, K, iron, fiber, folate, lutein, magnesium, potassium, protein and calcium.  This drink gives me so much energy that I have cut my coffee intake in the mornings in half!  I have also discovered this smoothie to be a wonderful hang over cure!

See below for my favorite breakfast recipe ——>

Morning Rush Green Smoothie

1 banana (fresh or frozen)

1 Fiber One Vanilla Yogurt

1 tsp. Simply JIF PB

1/2 scoop of Whey Chocolate Protein Powder

Ice

2 Tbsp. of water

1 cup of frozen spinach (you can use fresh but I always freeze a bag of baby spinach so it keeps longer)

Layer your ingredients in your blender always keeping your spinach the last thing put in.  That way it’s first to get grinned up and you don’t get pieces of whole spinach in your drink.   Otherwise its that easy!  Blend and enjoy!

Have you tried a green monster?  What is your favorite recipe?
