One of my New Year's resolutions is to eat healthier. Specifically I want to stop eating processed foods and start eating more fruits and vegetables. This is a daily battle for me. I love chips, cookies, candy, pizza etc. Basically if it's unhealthy for you I love it! I am trying really hard to change my eating habits this year. Anyway, I was reading this blog and she talked about trying the Green Monster which is a breakfast shake made with spinach, a banana, milk and ice. I know it sounds gross but it's really good! Brock even had a drink of mine and he loved it until I told him what was in it-ha ha!I I didn't even taste the spinach and it kept me full until lunch time.
I used the frozen spinach that comes in the square package.
The recipe I use is:
1/2 package (about 6 oz.) of spinach, 1 ripe banana, 1 cup of milk and ice
I made this again this morning and here is the recipe I used. I don't like drinking milk so I added orange juice instead and I think it tasted SO much better. The recipe below is the one I will use from now on. If I don't have strawberries I will substitute another fruit like blackberries or blueberries.
1/2 package (about 6 oz.) of spinach, 1 ripe banana, 1 cup of orange juice, a handful of chopped strawberries and ice
On the Green Monster website there are a ton of different recipes that you can try. I am going to make this again tomorrow and add some strawberries. Give the Green Monster a try and let me know if you like it!
