Green Monster


Green Monster

I have been drinking fruit smoothies since about April/May.  Around the first of June I read about green smoothies and have been making them every since.  It is a GREAT way to get in your fruits and veggies.

The following is more of a guide than a recipe.  I drink 4 or 5 of these a week.

The Green Monster

1 banana

1/2 cup spinach or 1/2 cucumber or 2 stalks celery

1/2 cup berries (any kind) or 1 apple or pear

2-3 tbsp plain yogurt

1 tbsp raw honey or blackstrap molasses

1/3 cup water

4-5 ice cubes

1/4 cup oats or flax seed (optional)

Blend all ingredients together in blender or food processor until smooth.  Pour into cups.  Makes 2 servings.  I usually drink both. 🙂
