Green Monster!

I finally tried one today!

I made mine with:

1 banana
1/3 cup plain, fat free yogurt
1 cup skim milk
1 cup spinach
some icecubes

I like these kinds of drinks ice, ice cold so I put in some ice cubes, it also made it nice and frothy. I didn't taste the spinach at all. This made a huge smoothie so I shared it with my 12 year old son. He loved it. He was skeptical at first - he said it was very green! But he also said he couldn't taste the spinach and he recommended strawberries for next time.

I had it as my snack before bed. I have diabetic medication I have to take before I go to bed and I have to take it with food, normally I have a glass of milk or a piece of toast, but I think this may be a new habit to get into. As well, it helps me get in some more milk and another serving of fruit and vegetables.


  1. Okay, I am totally afraid of the green monster, but I did buy some spinach yesterday and next time I make a smoothie, it's going in there, so wish me luck!

  2. Don't be scared! You won't taste the spinach at all, I promise :)
