I’ve had such an experience this morning!! Now I know most of you have been having Green Monsters for a long time now but I had my first today. So bear with me while I proclaim my love for them.
I have two things to say about these liquid wonders: 1.) YUM!! and 2.) Why didn’t you guys tell me what I was missing out on!? 😉
Here’s the short story of why I decided that today was the day I would make a green monster:
My stomach has been horrible since yesterday afternoon and I’m not sure why. Its so acidy 😦 I think it might have been from an overdose of raisins….. I had them on my morning oats, then again as a snack and later on as another snack. Then to top that off, last night I had some grapes!!! I’m pretty sure it was from all of that combined. I just can’t help it! I love raisins and their fresh counterpart: grapes ❤
Anywho: This morning I still felt yucky but knew that I needed to have something. ENTER——> Green Monster
Doesn’t it look so dark and monsterous? Its all thanks to my horribly lit kitchin 🙂
Yum, was it ever good! It tasted like chocolate chip oatmeal cookie batter, I’m serious! It did! Imagine that, my first green monster: A success!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Batter In Disguise
2 giant handfuls of baby spinach
1 tbsp flaxseed, ground
2/3 cup hemp milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 frozen banana
Method: Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend 🙂
I added a few ice cubes but it did not need it. I had to eat it with a spoon! (in my option, smoothies with a spoon are best)
Is it wrong if I have one of these for lunch too? I just might….. intuitive eating, you know?
Have a great day! I think I’m feeling a little better already 🙂
