Green Monster Smoothie

Stevie and I have been discussing ways of being healthier and feeding the girls more nutritious meals and snacks.  This evening we decided to try a Green Monster Smoothie.

Here's the before picture:

There are numerous variations of Green Monster Smoothies.  

Ours consisted of:
1 banana
6 strawberries
1 C. Greek Yogurt
2 C. Spinach
1 C. Kale
1/2 T. honey
handful of frozen berries

Here's the after picture:

It wasn't as green as I had hoped, it was a bit more brown, but it tasted really good!  Tasted just like a berry smoothie, but supposedly with many more health benefits.  It's a keeper - stay tuned to find out whether Shyla likes it!

This is awesome! I love Trader Joe's chocolate protein powder, and it makes a delicious chocolate shake =) Good for you and your girls for making such a healthy life for each other!
