The Green Monster Smoothie

Hey All! So St. Patty's came and went this last weekend and I was unfortunately down for the count just being exhausted and a little dehydrated. One of the things that has snapped me back, and helped me celebrate St. Patty's with a green beverage that wasn't beer was "The Green Monster". It's a super healthy smoothie that's made green with spinach. You can make them a million ways but the basic recipe is my favorite! I have been having one every morning and sometimes even late after dinner if I am hungry but don't want to rummage through my cupboards.
This recipe is super simple. All you need is a blender and the following ingredients. Don't add too much water. I did that the first time and it didn't come out so well. Just add enough to blend the ingredients:
  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • a couple handfuls of spinach
  • water
Here is a glamor shot of one: 
 Here is one at my desk. I bought this cup to feel legit. 

 Here is one at my house with my huge mug I bought at the dollar store!
 Here is a pre-blended one.
Go green guys! I think you will thank me. They are yummy, healthy, and filling. I am obsessed with this drink and I am positive it's the healthiest drink I have been obsessed with yet!
