Attempting a Green Monster…

November 25, 2009 at 3:22 am 2 comments

Well, this afternoon I emailed Angela from Oh She Glows about some natural ways to have healthy, happy skin.

I asked her if Green Monsters have any benefit and she said yes, they are fantastic. I explained about my not-so-successful first time with a Green Monster in which I was unable to finish it because of my utter disgust.

She emailed me back with a recipe for a fool-proof Green Monster. I was skeptical, but gave it a shot.

Here’s how it went:

Firstly I copied out the main points of the recipe I took off the Green Monster Movement website so I would know what to put etc.

Next, I went and picked two big leaves of Spinach from our vege garden.

Then I chopped up the Spinach and a banana and put it all in together, followed by 1.25 Cups of Vanilla Bliss Soy Milk.

The result/Verdict?


I was very happy and pleased to find that Angela was right, this was foolproof. Not only did it taste good, but it was drinkable! haha. Last time I made a green monster, the texture was so foul, I swallowed one mouthful and then gagged

This time round it was good! It actually kinda tasted like my Banana + Peanut Butter smoothies, only this one’s better for you šŸ™‚

Thank you so much Angela, you have converted me to a Green Monster fan! šŸ˜€

    Sounds similar to my first GM experience! I was so surprised that it turned out great!
    Yay that you liked it, great way to get that good ol’ spinach into you!

Hey there, my name's Jenny. I have a huge passion for cooking/baking, writing, yoga and photography. I love nature and my favourite thing to do is spend an entire day outside, breathing in crisp, fresh air. Even better if I have a pen and paper with me. I started out running in March 2009 but sustained an injury in October 2009 which has unfortunately prevented me from running. I've been experimenting with other kinds of exercise to find another one that clicks. Follow me on my journey to maintaining good health + surviving high school and pursuing a career in Journalism. I Hope you enjoy reading my blog!
