Monster smoothie

Little baby has been good to it’s mama.

I’ve literally had no morning sickness and very little nausea! {Your dad is eternally grateful}

In fact the only time I threw up during my 1st trimester was when i forgot to eat breakfast after taking my vitamins.Bleh. Way to go me.

I also havnt developed any specific hard core cravings yet {yet..}

But there is one thing that i think i may be developing an addiction to and may crave/look foreword to every morning.

 {Green} Monster Smoothie’s.

Now most of the time my smoothies are green and other times they are a brownish color, red or pink {this happens when im low on certain ingredients or get a little crazy with the fruit to spinach ratio}

But no matter the color they always taste delicious!

Here’s a recipe i have fallen in love with..

adapted from the Diva-Dish


1 Cup fresh squeezed OJ

3/4 cup Vanilla almond/soy milk/ 1% milk w/ 1 tsp vanilla

2 cups fresh spinach

1/2 (heaping)cup frozen peaches (i usually use whatever frozen fruit i have on hand, but peaches are the best!)

1 medium banana

ice (if needed)


Blend in blender until smooth and creamy.

I promise you wont taste the spinach and i promise you’ll fall in love with its delicious green-brown-uglyness.

  2. Hi there to all, how is the whole thing, I think every one is getting more from this site,
    and your views are nice for new people.

  3. I’m with Gentri! My mom has been making green smoothies for years and we just discovered how fantastic different flavors are in it. If you’re feeling super brave, try a dash of cayan pepper or a bit of peppermint extract with it!

  4. Love a good green smoothie! Do you know what else is yummy? Adding a dash of cinnamon and/ or vanilla!

  5. I’m glad they taste good-hopefully better than they look.
