It's the attack of the Green Monster... and it is delicious!
Don't let the green slime-color fool you!
In the blog/health world, a Green Monster is a shake made with spinach. Yup, spinach! The recipes and ingredients differ from person to person, but one of the main components has to be spinach.
I made it for the first time the other day and LOVED IT! So what's in mine:
1 cup soy milk
1 frozen banana
1.5 cups of spinach
0.5 cups blueberries
1 tbs. flaxseeds
You can't even taste the spinach and the shake tasted like some frosty banana dessert!
According to others who drink these little monsters daily, you can add up to 2 cups of fresh spinach without getting any "grassy" flavor and they're right. I've made Green Monsters almost daily since I've tried this one, and not once have I ever tasted the spinach. I drink Shakeology (Greenberry or Chocolate) most mornings and now throw in two handfuls of spinach... such an easy way to get in more veggies and nutrients.
After my workout sessions, I normally have a protein shake, so I've been throwing in handfuls of spinach into those as well. Just be sure to blend it all up and I promise you won't be disappointed.
I even tried just plan soy milk blended with about a cup of spinach and you can't taste it. SERIOUSLY!
Don't knock it till you try it!
