Green monster!

leave a comment »

Mmm, tasty Sunday.

So I was all brave and made my first Green Monster! have you heard Green Monsters? I was scurred but I have no idea why.  Ha, actually I don’t like the blender we own and I hate washing it by hand.

Green Monster

My first green monster:

  • 2 fists of spinach
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 scoop amazing grass
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 1 squirt flax oil
  • 1 tsp flax seeds
  • 1 ripe ass peach
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 milk
  • 2 pinches of xanthan gum

Ha,I threw a lot of tasty crap in mine! Not to shabby at all! I threw in the almond butter to use it up, I wish I had used a bit less of it. I don’t like the taste roasted almond butter, I prefer the raw. The xanthan gum really made this thicken up! I totally needed a straw but had the help from a spoon instead.

I could see how this would be a great way to get in some great stuff without having to really think about it. In 16 oz I had maca, greens, spinach, flax, nut butter, 2 servings of fruit, a serving of dairy and feel pretty content. I’ll make this again but it won’t be an everyday thing because I’m kind of lazy…

I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday, working or off. I plan on hanging out in sweats, roasting veggies, doing laundry and playing dj with all the great tunes that live in our house!
