Making of a green monster

For the last couple of weeks, I have been enjoying “green monsters” for lunch.  I actually got my parents to try one when I visited them two weeks ago.  My dad said he really liked it, which is a huge deal. My parents are very traditional with their food, especially my dad.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to show a quick making of the green monster. It is extremely easy and takes all of 2 minutes to get together.  I think it is perfect for a lunch time meal.  My breakfasts are usually pretty large and have big time staying power, so by the time lunch is here, I really don’t feel that hungry. 

Step 1:

Get out your blender and fill it to the top with spinach. I would guess this is somewhere between two or three cups.

Step 2:

Add in all your other ingredients. This one looks to have had 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup random berries, 2 ice cubes, 1/2 packet stevia, and a couple dark chocolate chips.  Blend on high for about 30 seconds.

Step 3:

Pour into a glass and enjoy with a straw.  The green monster will leave a green mustache if you don’t use a straw. I highly recommend a straw if you have somewhere to go or are drinking this on the run. 

I have been leaving the chocolate chips out of the ones I’ve been making lately. The chocolate protein powder gives it enough flavor, for sure.  Depending one what ingredients you put in this, the green monster has approximately 250 calories and close to 20 grams of protein. Add some fruit or other veggies on the side, and you have yourself a nutritious and yummy lunch.  Let me know if you try one!

Kitchen with Kate - Yum! I’ll have to try this version – I’ve been making a similar one with vanilla almond milk, vanilla protein powder and kale (same fruits!)

I want to try the spinach/chocolate version!

Linds - I just love these things. What type of protein powder do you use? I am almost out of mine and am thinking about switching brands.

Sara - This is one of my favorite green monster recipes, especially if you need your coffee in the morning like I do!

I usually add a tbsp of ground flaxseeds and a scoop of no sugar added chocolate nesquik but I’m sure a scoop of chocolate protein powder would do the trick.

Let me know if you try it!
