One way I love to start off my mornings is by making Green Monsters. Some of you may think adding vegetables into smoothies is gross, but trust me, you can’t even taste it!
This morning, I decided to use adapt the Classic Green Monster recipe, which includes, a frozen banana, kale, chia seeds, and nut butter. Instead, the recipe I used is as follows:
The Greens- Adapted from Oh She Glows
– 5 cubes of watermelon
– 3 stalks of kale or 2 cups of spinach
– 1 cup of seedless grapes
– 1 small frozen banana
– 1 tsp of cashew butter, which I made by processing raw cashews in my Vitamix
– 2 scoops of strawberry coconut yogurt, such as this one
– Half a scoop of bioflavia
– 1 tbsp of chia seeds
Directions: Add all the ingredients into a high power blender, like the Vitamix, and process until smooth, or until desired consistency. If you do not have a high power blender, feel free to add some almond milk or water into the base of the blender before adding the ingredients.
Enjoy this delicious and vitamin-filled drink!
It’s time for me to head downstairs and watch the Wimbledon game.
