Green Monster Smoothie-Bittersweet?

So I have been on the quest towards a healthier lifestyle this year, and I discovered how fruit or veggie smoothies do wonders for the health. I read about the green monster smoothie, otherwise called the green smoothie and I decided to give it a try. It is very easy to make and there are tons of variations of this smoothie but I did mine the easy way.

Spinach  (I used ugu)
One apple
One banana
One pear

I diced the apple, banana and pear and used the leaves from the vegetables. I then blended them all, starting with the apple and pear, using a blender. I added quite a lot of honey to sweeten the smoothie, and here's how it looked!

So....I poured it in a glass and tasted it. Now I am gonna be absolutely honest about my opinion about this smoothie.....i hated how it tasted! I felt guilty almost immediately after because I know it is extremely nourishing and all, I did lots of research on this and was excited about incorporating it into my diet, but....this did not quite do it for me im afraid! I read on someone's blog that it has an acquired taste, but I do not even think I can endure it long enough to get to that point, lol.
My advice is that you should give it a try, it is most definitely an individual thing. I guess I would just have to stick to pure fruity smoothies from here on!

Have you ever tried the green smoothie/green monster and what did you think? What other variations do you know of?


  1. Haha! Same here, fruity smoothies only please! Once you put the greens it's just yuck!!
