I finally gave into the Green Monster.
I follow Oh She Glows and read about the Green Monster about a month ago.
My first reaction to this smoothie concoction did not involve mouth watering sensations. I was not even slightly interested in making this smoothie.
However, a couple weeks later I landed upon Oh She Glow's sister site, the Green Monster Movement. Oh She Glows started a new website because so many people had contacted her about their own Green Monster experience! Over 200 people have posted their own version of the Green Monster.
Okay, Green Monster, you got my attention.
I decided to give this smoothie a shot.
This smoothie is a combination of almond milk, spinach, flax seeds, banana, and ice. Sounds delicious right?
Sarcasm aside here is my smoothie testament: Amazing! The banana disguises the spinach into a delightful treat. This smoothie has been part of my breakfast for the past 2 weeks!
Check out the health benefits below:

Well, I hope I have convinced you to give this smoothie a shot! Find the recipe after the break below.
