Green Monster Movement

I was just thinking about how I can get more greens into my and boyrobot’s diet. Boyrobot barely eats any veggies and although I don’t mind it, I’m almost always caught choosing french fries rather than steamed veggies as my side :P (So bad I know!)

And then I started reading about all of these veggie smoothies and how detox smoothies are all the rage these days. Then I found the green monster movement!

Basically it’s a page full of recipes of “green smoothies”. Green because it has either kale or spinach which are both super healthy for you.

I remember my parents made me veggie drinks with their Juicer using carrots and apples. Surprisingly the fruits did a very good job of masking the veggie taste! I am expecting the same result with these (I hope). I’ll try it and report back to you guys. I’m hoping to start making these as part of my morning routine.

I am going to try the Blueberry-Banana Green Monster first:

Blueberry-Banana Green Monster
2-3 cups organic spinach
1-1.25 cups milk (your choice of cow’s milk, soy, hemp, almond, rice, etc)
1 tablespoon flax (optional)
1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries
Place the ingredients into the blender and blend like a mad person! Pour into a fancy glass and gulp down the delicious antioxidants. There’s no better way to start your day!

And for the milk, I am going to use Almond milk. After reading up on all of the milk alternatives, it seems like almond milk is the most healthy choice!

Do you guys have any favorite “green” smoothie recipes to share?

Just be careful not to down too many of these since it’s really easy to overdo it on calories when you drink stuff.

I’m a big fan of almond milk as well. It’s not as chaulky as rice or soy milk.

almond milk has pretty much replaced soy milk for me at home. I don’t know many good green smoothies, but i know a place called Renovo make alot of them and they are good, maybe you can check out what they put in theirs for inspiration

I’ve been drinking that stuff for the past year! I usually just have the chocolate green superfood with almond milk and drink it for a week after being in Mexico to “detox.” I’ve blended the chocolate one with almond milk and frozen strawberries. I really liked it and feel so healthy! :)
