I am really liking these Green Monster smoothies. You can check out my original Green Monster here. I have switched it up by replacing the protein powder with PB, and adding in some vanilla yogurt and halving the milk. Today I decided to add some strawberries.
I thought this was great! I just did milk and no yogurt today. I think I’d like to try this with a vanilla or chocolate soy milk. I forgot to pick some up this weekend.
This is such a quick, filling breakfast for me. I can make it before I come into work each morning in about 5 minutes. Quick is extremely important for me in the mornings. I’m not much of a morning person, so I’m always rushing around to get out the door. 🙂
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 c milk
1 T flax seed
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
4-5 strawberries, halved
Place all ingredients except for the ice into the blender. Blend for about 1 minute until smooth.
Add the ice and use the ice crush setting to blend it into the smoothie.
Pour into your favorite glass or to-go cup, and enjoy!
