the green monster

last wednesday i read a post by kelly over at journey to a new me about a smoothie drink thing called a green monster... you should go check her post out because she gives lots of information about flaxseed and its health benefits and stuff... she also linked her post to the original green monster blog, which has all kinds of recipes that can be made... basically, the smoothie's base ingredients are some kind of milk (cow, almond, soy, etc), spinach thus the green coloring and a supplement (i've been using flaxseed everytime)...

sooooooooooooooo BAM here's my ingredients:

i've been using almond milk, strawberries, bananas, spinach and the flaxseed stuff... here's what it looks like after blended:

my husband asked me if i was drinking vomit...

so anyways, i've been drinking it every morning since friday of last week... i haven't really noticed any major increase in energy yet, like noted on kelly's blog, but i figured i'd give it a while... also, on saturday i noted that about two hours after i drank it, i was starving again... and i don't mean just a little hungry - my belly was growling like there was no tomorrow... so i don't know how filling it is... today is the first day i tried one in the morning before work, so i'll see what happens... i have lunch at 11:30, so i'd like to last until then before getting too hungry...

OH, by the way, the green monster actually tastes GREAT! all i can taste are the strawberries and banana in it, plus a little flavor from the flaxseed... seriously, i highly recommend trying it out... and go to that original website, because there are tons of ideas, like adding pumpkin and stuff...

anyways, so we had our second softball game last night... which meant i wasn't able to go to the oa meeting again... but next week our game is on tuesday, so i'll be set... and after today i only have one more day of work left for this week - we are off on thursday and friday!! that gives me a five day weekend since monday is memorial day!! w00t w00t!! have a great day everyone!

I had a green monster kick last summer. They are yummy... and lots of good vitamins from the spinach and other goodies. Good for you for giving it a try!

I love green monsters :) However, without the strawberries and add mango or pineapple or even kiwi it stays a nice bright green!

Laurie said...

It's been a while but I used to drink them all the time! I'd put spinach, strawberries, banana, and almond milk in mine. Sometimes chocolate protein powder and/or peanut butter. :-) Yum!

traci said...

That really does look gross. haha But so healthy. Maybe you just needed to add some protein (more than the milk was giving you) to make it more filling. Maybe add some yogurt to it. Thanks for following my blog! :)

Mike was right. It looks like vomit. BUT as long as it tastes good and you like it.....
huggs & kisses....love you!! :)

fitfan said...

That sounds terrific! I wonder if hemp seeds would affect the taste too much. I really got hooked on them in my oatmeal while I was teaching, but now that it's summer and I have my kitchen at my disposal for lunch, I haven't really used them.

I really want to try these "green monsters". This is the 5th or 6th time I've seen a post about them this week.

Stop by my blog and grab the Sunshine award I left for you. :)

Adding protein powder might keep you from getting hungry too quickly. I have to set a timer to remind myself to eat 4 hours after having mine. I never get hungry! I'm not fond of the green. I use frozen fruit, almond milk, flaxseed and protein powder.

WOOHOO! I've been out of town and busy with car and house buying... I'm trying so hard to catch up on blogs! I'm soooo excited you tried one!! They are sooooo good! I had mine today !

And congrats on the 2 lb loss!!! I know you'll do great this weekend. I have the same kinds of plans, we can do it girl! We can still drink and BBQ and have fun AND stay on track!!! Cheers ! :)

Have a great weekend!

Try them with frozen raspberries too! It makes them pink, for those who are scared of the color, and raspberries are so yummy they cover the taste of almost anything. My kids drink these!

(Found your blog on the Blog hop by the way!)
