I am a vegan wife and mother to a meat eating family. I will share with you recipes I have tested and changes I am making to encourage my family to lean into a vegan diet.

A Green Monster

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite smoothies…

A Green Monster

This is so good and so good for you!

There are so many variations on this shake, but I am going to share with you the one that I make most often.

In a blender I start by adding 1 cup of almond milk

2 handfuls of spinach (you can also use kale, mixed greens or any other green you like)

1/2 frozen banana (this works as ice for the shake)

1 Tbsp Almond Butter (you can use peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice)

About 1 Tbsp of chia seeds

Give it a whirl and you end up with a very healthy shake. 

I drink this shake 2-3 times per week.  Sometimes I add hemp oil and Vega protein powder.  It’s a great way to get your greens, because the taste really is covered by the banana and almond butter.

If you’ve tried variations of the green monster, I’d love to hear how you made yours.
