Return of the Green Monster

With a new year comes new promises to one’s self to work out more, eat better, etc. For me, that means two things: a revival of the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and the return of the most repulsive looking drink on the planet: the Green Monster.

I discovered these last summer as a way to sneak leafy greens into my diet. Blend up a bag of baby spinach, toss in some berries, or a banana or other fruit to cover up the taste of the main ingredient and you’re good to go.

I got a blender on sale from work and some of these cold beverage travel cups and starting smoothing. I made some today to take to work in the morning. They are really thick, but if you stir them with that straw they are just like any other smoothie you’d get from a coffee shop or something.
