Green Monster

On Sunday after the wedding, we headed to Cracker Barrel for brunch. By the time I got back to Spartanburg, I was craving some veggies in a major way. I swung by the grocery store and picked up the ingredients for a green monster smoothie. It was the perfect afternoon snack and helped hit the reset button after a fun filled weekend. This is the base recipe that I use but you can customize it any way. Feel free to throw in some blueberries or kale - whatever you have on hand.
Green Monster
  •  1 cup almond, soy, or regular milk
  •  1 frozen sliced banana (if not frozen, add ice)
  •  2 large handfuls of spinach
  •  1 tbsp ground flax (optional)
  •  1 tbsp peanut butter
  •  1/2 cup greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy!
