A Little Spin on the Classic Green Monster Smoothie
If smoothies are your thing than you probably know and have tried the Green Monster Smoothie from Oh She Glows website. There are many other versions of the Green Monster Smoothie shared here at Green Monster Movement, but our Brown Monster Smoothie is a bit different. Just as good (despite the color) we promise. This smoothie is like an instant energy booster and metabolism mover… Win-Win on all sides!
Brown Monster Smoothie
1 cup of spinach (regular or baby)
1 small beet raw, peeled and cut in bite size pieces (if your blender is not strong enough steam beet first for easier blending)
1 small banana (for a thicker smoothie use a frozen banana)
6 medium strawberries
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon protein powder of choice (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend everything for about 1 to 2 minutes or until everything is smooth and there are no large chunks of berries or beet.
Pour in tall glass and serve right away. This makes one (16 oz) serving.
