Today I am part of the Mom’s Crazy Cooking Challenge! This month, what we had to do is find a smoothie recipe from another blog, make it and share it. Easy right? Not for me! I saw so many recipes that I wanted to make, but I couldn’t narrow it down. Than when I decided on what I wanted to make, I was out of milk! I hate when that happens!! Arrr! I had to search again!! So with much searching I found the Pina Colada Green Monster Smoothie by Elise’s Kitchen.
I thought this smoothie was perfect!! It has coconut milk, frozen pineapple, frozen banana and some spinach! Yes spinach!! The reason I made this smoothie was because I never had spinach in a smoothie. I hear that you can’t taste it. Well I thought, I’ll be the judge of that!! Sure enough I whipped everything together and bam no spinach taste. I got more vitamins and minerals and no extra taste. Now I see why everyone makes green monster smoothies. You should try it, it’s not that scary!!
This smoothie is creamy, only a slight hint of banana and a blast of pineapple and I can’t forget my favorite part, the coconut milk! I really enjoyed this smoothie! What a healthy treat!! Perfect for an afternoon snack!
This recipes makes about 2 1/4 cups, so I drank one cup and put the rest in a freezer bag for another time. It’s nice to freeze your smoothies so can just grab, blend and drink! Talk about a time saver!
Tell me, have you ever had a Green Monster Smoothie? If so what kinds do you like best? These kind of smoothies are new to me, so I would love some great recipes to try out!
