Green Monster

Fact: As I am typing this, I am enjoying another one of these smoothies.

Seriously, I never imagined a smoothie would taste SO GOOD with vegetables in it! But I hope you don’t stop reading! You should really give pureed vegetables a chance. Cool and refreshing on a hot Texas summer day, or perfect post-workout! A smoothie and a salad at one time!

If you are throughly confused right now about the type of “vegetables” I am referring to, then that answer would be: SPINACH!

Sometime I get a little overzealous and buy the HUGE spinach container in the grocery store. And there are just so many salads I can eat at one time.

I had heard whispers of putting spinach in smoothies and people saying you couldn’t taste it. I didn’t believe them. I tried it myself and I am now a spinach smoothie convert. And just look at the beautiful green color! Lots of chlorophyll there! I highly recommend putting spinach in your next smoothie. My smoothie combo was banana, mango, and spinach. Try it and you won’t be disappointed!
