Green Monster #4

This Green Monster recipe is dedicated to Father’s Day… just a simple recipe for a great dad :)

Green Monster #4

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 handful of Spinach
  • 1 large Banana
  • 1+1/2 cups fresh Pineapple Chunks
  • splash of 100% fruit juice, if needed to get the blender going

Instructions

  1. Put the pineapple chunks into a blender, then add the spinach and banana. BLEND WELL! No one wants spinach leaves floating around and getting stuck in their teeth.

This smoothie is super thick and creamy. It is a great pre-workout smoothie for the active dads out there, but if he already worked out, add some vanilla protein powder!

Dadvice:

  1) The smartest words a kid will ever hear
  2) Could be followed by, “I told you so,” but seldom is
  3) Often not appreciated upon first, second, or third hearing

How right, right?

    i make smoothies similar to this all the time! i usually do a handful of spinach a bit of skim milk to help blend, and i find any combination of fruit containing strawberries/raspberries easily overpowers the spinach and tastes amazing :)
