So, I finally caved and tried a green smoothie. This awesome breakfast was just as amazing as Boston's actual Green Monster. I will admit, I was slow to jump on the green bandwagon, but now that I am on it I am not getting off!Pinterest. This one used spinach and not tons of other veggies, but a banana instead. It also had oats and walnuts which I wasn't so into.
I decided to keep the banana, added some flaxseed for some extra fiber, some almond butter, and drizzled in a little maple syrup.
I was also full for hours after - the combo of the spinach, banana, and flaxseed really kept me going all day!
Green Monster Smoothie:
- 1 cup of almond milk (sure you can use milk of your choice)
- large handful of spinach
- 1 frozen banana in chunks
- heaping 1/2 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
- heaping 1/2 tablespoon of almond butter (can use nut butter of choice)
- small drizzle of maple syrup
- a few ice cubes
Put it all in, blend it all up, and seriously, enjoy!
*disclaimer, I tend to be a wacky food combo type of person, so my taste buds are already in "healthy crunchy mode*
