Green Monsters = Deliciousness

I am so addicted to “green monsters” as they are called around the blog world!  I originally saw them on Oh She Glows blog which I read every day, and was a tad bit scared to try them.  They were so green!  But then I dug in and wow, there’s now no turning back.

So what’s in my green monster?


a few handfuls of organic baby spinach

3/4 cup rice milk (my favourite kind is the brown basmati!)

3 ice cubes

1 frozen, very ripe banana

That’s it!  It has the best flavour and it’s chock full of nutrients.  Angela also recommends steaming the spinach before you blend it up, to get the most nutrition from it.  I have yet to do it because I’m a little scared of steamed spinach..but I may eventually 🙂
