i finally tried my first Green Monster, except in this here hiz-ouse we call it the Super Hero Smoothie.
because hallie thinks she has "powers" and to get her to drink this i called it a super hero smoothie and well, that is pretty smart of me. i know.
because it's green.
bright, magically green.
oh and delicious. it tastes like a banana-y, peanut butter-y milkshake. you don't taste even one bit of the spinach. not a single, tiny BIT of spinach, i swear.
i deviated from the original recipe, because i didn't have yogurt and it was still awesome.
Super Hero Smoothie
1 cup skim milk
1 TBSP peanut butter (i used skippy natural creamy)
2 cups spinach
1 small, sliced up frozen banana
BLEND and watch the magic.
you can add whatever fruit you want to. or yogurt. or skip the milk and just do water/ice. or leave our the pb. i think the banana is key. i've heard great things about pineapple too.
don't be a skeptic. do it. also - go to http://www.greenmonstermovement.com/ for a gazillion more recipes.
