It’s all about green today,
Raise your green smoothie. Cheers!
I had a green smoothie (green monster smoothie) this morning and it was so much better than any of the ones I have made in the past and it was a pretty green color too not like my first one (you can read about my 1st green smoothie). Looked nice next to my freshly painted green nails ha ha
In today’s smoothie went 1/2 cup of original almond milk, 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk (I planned to use 1 cup of original but I ran out), 1/2 banana, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 2 cups of spinach and about 5 ice cubes (my smoothies have to be EXTRA cold). It was so tasty, I can’t wait to have another.
Everyone makes their green smoothies differently so here are a few that you might be interested in reading about.
Angela’s green smoothies
And today I just came across The Green Smoothie Queen site and blog. I’m excited to go read more.
Also, my friend Lain has used the book Green Smoothie Revolution and wrote about her experience with green smoothies over on her blog 30 Minute Martha. Cute name for a blog huh?
So there you have it for green smoothie recipes and tips. Enjoy!
Been so busy today that lunch came late so I whipped up an egg with spinach and had an egg sandwich with hot sauce and Laughing Cow cheese. It was definitely a winner!
Hubby and I have no special plans for dinner but we do have a date at the gym for spin class!
Do you have any plans for St. Patrick’s Day? Have you had a green smoothie today?
P.S. Just in case you are looking, Eating Well has some healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

Hey Angie, Wow! That smoothie really did turn out a beautiful green. It’s about the same color as the sweater I wore yesterday.
Hey, can you describe the smoothie’s flavor for us less brave souls? 😀

Sure, all I can say is the green smoothie was a bit sweet, never would have known there was 2 cups of spinach in it. It was probably that way from the banana, vanilla almond milk and vanilla protein powder. But all the ones I have ever made never taste weird always very good.
Let us know if you try one sometime!
That sounds some good, Angie! 🙂
Thanks for the link love. I appreciate it!
It was good! And you’re welcome. Love your blog!
I need a better look at those green nails.

Ok I am going to try it but not without some reservations! I find it hard to believe that you can’t taste the spinach in that smoothie. BUT if you can’t then this drink will end up on my list of miracle foods…like the yummy 3% cheese I found!

I hope you’ll try it sometime and let me know what you think. It really is yummy!
This sounds really nice actually Angie! I might try something like this with soya milk some day (we don’t have almond milk).
I have times I make smoothies, should do it more often though because it is good! I like carrot and peach smoothies.
Something we do here in Brazil is “Vitamina”
Mix 1 avocado and milk and sugar. If you want to you can also add an apple or a banana to it. It is really good! I had never heard of it before I came here, but now I’m stuck 🙂
Of course, I don’t use as much sugar as the Brazilians do but it certainly keeps you full for a long time. You should try it and tell us what you think 🙂
.-= Linda´s last blog ..What Do You Want? =-.
Soy milk will work just fine! Carrot and peach sounds like an interesting combo. I haven’t ventured out more to those with more veggies in it but I will. Just need one of those awesome Vita Mix mixers ha ha
The Vitamina sounds interesting except for the face we can’t bring avocados into the home. We have a parrot and I don’t know if you know but avocados are toxic to them if they get a hold of it or by any chance are shared a meal or piece of anything that contains it so we just don’t buy them but I add them to whatever I get when we go out. I’ll just have to fly to Brazil to visit you and we can make them there!
This idea is all new to me. I love it. Thanks for inspiring me to try it out and giving me lots of ideas. Thanks again!! I’ll keep you posted!

You’re welcome Tiffanee! Hope you try it and come back and let us know what you thought.
Hubby finally replaced our dead blender, so I might have to try some green smoothies this month. I usually go for the berry and yogurt smoothie, but I always hear everyone raving about their green smoothies, so I want to give it a fair chance.

Hubby gets an A+ for replacing the blender. I use the Magic Bullet blender so much I know one day it’s going to poop out on me and I’ll be devastated LOL Can’t wait to hear what you think of the green smoothies!
I’m ‘thinking’ about trying your receipe but still a skeptic on the whole unable to taste the spinach thing. Can you use basic skim milk?
Please do try it! You’ll never know until you do…at least that is how it worked for me because I was kind of weirded out about it in the beginning. I think using skim milk would be fine.
