Hmm… this post may seem a bit redundant but I promise there is an interesting twist! Tonight I enjoyed another green monster… and it was even better than the first! I made a few adjustments by adding a tablespoon of cocoa and using 1 and 1/2 bananas to make a bit more smoothie goodness. I also put in more spinach, can’t go wrong with extra greens!
I used Penzey’s Dutch Process Cocoa, my mom shipped me a bottle so I could still have my cocoa at school! She is the BOMB.
Penzey’s is an awesome spice company and I highly recommend their products. If you are lucky enough to have a store nearby, try and make a stop sometime (the store smells AMAZING.) If not, they have an online store and you can also order a (free!) catalog, which also comes with some mouth watering recipes.
Because of the cocoa, tonight’s smoothie wasn’t a super bright green. But it was still delish!
So thick that my spoon floated on top. 😀 I think I have to invest in a straw so i can drink my smoothie like a normal person!
Alright, so I told you there would be a twist to this post.. and no, it wasn’t the cocoa. Here it is!
I am challenging you, my dear little readers, to Happy Honeycrisp’s Green Monster Challenge! I want you to set a goal that has to do with green monsters and stick to it for 30 days! For me, I’m going to try and have one smoothie every day. If that’s completely unrealistic for you, make it one smoothie per week! Or even just TRY your first monster within the next 30 days. Seriously, what do you have to lose? They are cheap (spinach and bananas? so inexpensive!), fun, TASTY and magnificently wonderful for your body and health!
I’ll let you guys know how I’m doing with my challenge and give you support to stick with yours! Also, I’ll let you know all the new versions I try and I’ll be completely honest about how scrumptious (or not) they are. Feel free to comment if you want to join in and post your goals! I hope you all challenge yourselves to be even more amazing than you already are!
Talk to you soon! Go green!
