Monster Monday


Green Monster Monday...to be exact.

Now wait...before you go clicking the big "X" to leave my blog...I know this picture may look gross, but I can promise you this girl would NOT drink anything that is disgusting for breakfast!!

 Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, you know.

Have you heard of a Green Monster?

 I just discovered this different type of smoothie and decided that I'd give it a GO!!
I am working on incorporating more veggies in my diet (I love them but it can be hard to get those daily servings!) and I am a HUGE smoothie/shake fan so I thought I'd kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Here's the recipe.
Don't be scurred of the spinach in it, ladies :)


Green Monster

~2-3 cups spinach (for your first one, you can use a little less to get used to the taste)
~1 banana
~2-3 strawberries
~3/4 cup of milk (I use Silk's unsweetened almond milk)
~Truvia sweetner
~Ice


Blend all those suckers together.
Voila!!

It only has 200 calories and is good for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

**I want to hear from atleast one of you ladies {especially all you upcoming brides that are being extra healthy - you know who you are!!} that you tried this soo go on and get to it!!**


One thing before I go...

THANK YOU to the sweet CMae {like how I used your colors?) over at Live What You Love for picking my blog for the "This Blog Rocks" link up!!




It means a lot to me that you guys enjoy reading my blog and I hope that some of you new ladies or gents that come across my blog from this link up will enjoy my blog, too! :)


Have a great Monday!
