Green Monster Spinach Smoothie

I came across this recipe today and am planning a trip to the store, just so I can try it. I’m a big fan of smoothies, but don’t want to have so many calories in one that I have to use it as a meal replacement. My biggest priorities with a smoothie are great taste, low calorie, tons of vitamins, and lots of protein. The more protein, the better! I’ve recently been seeing a lot about putting spinach in smoothies, but have been skeptic. The recipe I came across today might be a winner. I can’t wait to try it out!

      I did. I didn’t have the exact ingredients, but still decided to give it a whirl. I used plain greek yogurt and skim milk. I then added artificial vanilla and almond. Even with using the wrong ingredients, it was very good. I can’t wait to try it with the right ones. I would recommend this recipe. Next, I want to try tropical Shakeology.

    Sounds delicious! I might have to try adding some spinach to my morning smoothie and see how it tastes.

      I’ve been told that you can add spinach to any smoothie and you won’t taste it. I’m not sure if this is true, but it’s worth a try.
