Green Monster Smoothie

Tadd and I have been trying different “green monster” smoothie recipes lately, and after some trial and error, I believe we have finally found the perfect blend!  If you are unfamiliar with green monster smoothies, the addition of spinach might throw you off, but trust me when I say you really can’t taste it at all.

Green Monster Smoothie:


2 sliced bananas

1/3 cup of peanut butter

1 single-serve container of greek yogurt (we used strawberry this time)

1/2 cup soy milk

2 handfuls of spinach

1 1/2 cups crushed ice

Blend well & serve.   Mmmmmmmm…

  1. oh thank you Heather! I might try it. I have been having protein smoothies for breakfast most mornings. I use almond milk, frozen banana sliced up, marnNatha organic peanut butter, Nutribiotic vanilla rice protein,sometimes i put some local raw honey also. So deliscious!!! and filling and lasting, I don’t get hungry until its lunch time. thanks for sharing your recipe, i want to try it because i’ve been afraid to use the spinach.

    • Embrace the spinach! I was skeptical at first too. You can see that it does turn the smoothie green, but I promise you can’t taste it! Peanut butter and banana are both very dominant flavors. They completely eclipse any hint of spinach.
