My First Green Monster

I made my first Green Monster this morning. Take a look at the website if you aren't familiar with Green Monsters. There are many different recipes to try. I made the Virgin Green Monster.

The ingredients are:
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 Tbsp Flax Seed
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup milk
  • ice

This is what it looks like when its all blended together.


Pretty intimidating looking! I have to admit I was a little scared of what this was going to taste like. I smelled it first, but all I could smell was the banana. So here goes nothing!


And the verdict is:


Its really good! I couldn't taste the spinach at all, it just tastes like a banana smoothie. I'm glad to find another nutritious breakfast. I've really been wearing out the yogurt and granola lately. Now I can mix it up with a Green Monster sometimes.

I ordered some Amazing Grass last night, because I've been curious about it lately. Tim and I sat down together and looked at the website and decided to buy a few sampler packets to try and see what we like. I think these will be good to add into my Green Monsters.


  1. Wow! I am intrigued and heading over to that site right now! I can ALWAYS use new ideas for healthy drinks/food! Yay! Thx for posting this!

  2. Isn't is crazy how deceptively good they are?! I can't wait to start making them again!
