Green Monster Smoothie

green monster

A few weeks ago I ordered the Oh She Glows cookbook and ever since have been testing out as many recipes as I can. There are so many delicious and healthy options and this basic green monster smoothie is my new favorite breakfast/lunch/snack. What better way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies than in a tasty smoothie? For a filling meal in a hurry I blend in a scoop of vanilla protein powder . I make this at least two times a week and I promise you can’t taste the veggies.
