“The Green Monster”


Since February my husband and I have been on this lifestyle change to be healthier and I must say that I have been enjoying every minute of it. From the walking to swimming laps, to eating healthier, well majority of the times … You know a sister have to indulge every now and then … LOL … Anywho back to what I was saying, Every aspect of this journey has been great and I am loving the results. So much so that I amp’ d up my journey with a drink that I notoriously call the “Green Monster” A.K.A. Green Smoothie. After researching so many reviews and looking at thousands of recipes and youtube videos I was finally ready to try this drink that everyone is so crazed about. So off to the store we went and let me just add that Whole Foods is the BOMB.COM. In the store I was off the chain buying everything imaginable that could go in a green smoothie. With everything in tow I was set to make my concoction the next morning. Daybreak finally came and the time had finally come to be in smoothie bliss. After one sip I knew that I was in love but I knew there was just one more test this drink had to pass, my husband. He’s not a picky eater but some things are just a plain flat out NO! I slowly handed him his cup and waited for “THE LOOK” and to my surprise he loved it. It was at that moment I knew we had discovered a sure winner.


Green Smoothie

Ingredients

2-3 handfuls of Organic Baby Spinach
1 Apple, Diced
1  Banana, Sliced
1 Mango, Diced
1 20 oz. Can of Pineapple Chunks, Drained
1 6 oz Greek Yogurt (Any Flavor)
1 cup of Organic Coconut Milk
2 Tablespoons of Organic Coconut Oil

Directions
Throw all ingredients into a blender and whirl away. Blend until everything is well combined. Drink & Enjoy!

*TIP –  (1) In the warmer months freeze the fruit the night before for a cold refreshing drink!
(2) BYOC – Be Your Own Chef and use whatever fruit you like. If the green color scares you, start off with a little and work your way up  over time. If mangos and pineapples are not in season use strawberries or whatever tickles your fancy. Play around with the ingredients until you come up with a FAVE of your own.
(3) The smoothie is best drunk fresh but leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 24 hrs.
