Green Monster Smoothie Recipe

Green Monster Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are a great way of getting a whole lot of goodness in just one glass, and this Green Monster super Smoothie recipe has to be one of the most nutritious of all. At first I didn’t believe that a smoothie made with GREEN VEGETABLES could taste good but oh my how I was wrong.. this smoothie is super delicious as well as being nutritious and even my sister agrees!


This green monster smoothie is crammed with antioxidants, vitamins (including vitamins A & C), minerals (including calcium & iron) and fibre and provides just 98 calories per glass (this recipe serves 2).


You can also add a scoop of protein powder to make it the perfect *post work-out* smoothie!

    This is gorgeous! So nice that I drunk both servings & then made some more.
    I even convinced my non-breakfasting non-fruit loving teenager to try it & he loved it too!
    Guess that’s his breakfast sorted from now on 🙂

    I loved it! Tasted beautiful and I was extremely dubious about spinach and blueberries!

    It will definitely become a more regular thing!

    Wow this was so tasty! Looks a little weird (husband asked why I was drinking algae!). And the ingredients were cheap too! Healthy and inexpensive breakfast works for me!

    Tried this with frozen blueberries and it was delicious! Then added a few more and poured it into Ice Lolly moulds – just as nice and my 6 year old loves it too! (although fortunately for me he loves spinach anyway, so doesn’t need to be tricked!!)
