Green Monster Smoothie
2 cups/500mL Spinach, washed
1/2 cup/125mL Plain greek yogurt or dairy free alternative
1 Banana or avocado half
1/2 cup/125mL Pasteurized egg whites (optional)
1 cup/250mL Frozen fruit
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes.
Pour into a glass and enjoy!
If your smoothie is too thick, thin it with a little water or milk.
Tip: Pineapple and mango go really well in this smoothie, but any frozen fruit will work. Fruit adds natural sweetness, so there is no need to add any other sweetener.
Pasteurized egg whites are sold in 500 mL or 1 litre cartons, and can be found in the egg aisle of your local grocery store.
Tip: Make it a smoothie bowl! Fill your favourite dish with the Green Monster and top with a serving of Nova Scotia Granola or an add-in like unsweetened shredded coconut, nuts or seeds.
It’s not easy being green! This smoothie is surprisingly delicious, don’t let the colour fool you. This is a great breakfast option to try around Saint Patrick’s Day. The key to having kids try this vegetable packed smoothie, is to give it a cool name! The taste will speak for itself!
