This Green Monster Smoothie recipe is delicious! It’s made with kale, strawberries and hemp seeds for full flavor and works as a meal replacement smoothie.
Do you relate to this at all? It’s 2 pm and suddenly you’re panicked because you need to go pick up the kids from school and you’re starving. The last time you ate was that leftover bacon the kids didn’t finish at breakfast. Or did you even have breakfast this morning? No, breakfast is for people with time. That’s the last thing you have.
Am I right? This is me pretty much every morning. I have every intention of eating my spinach salad or curried chicken for lunch, but I get busy and soon forget to feed myself.
That means but the time I get on the road to pick up the kids from school I’m full-fledged hangry – you know, hungry angry.
I’ve tried different things like pre-made lunches for myself, but usually I’m just in too much of a hurry to settle down to eat. But I do like to drink beverages. In fact, I usually have at least two cups of chai tea before noon. Uh oh, maybe all that caffeine isn’t so good for me either. Yes, I could have this Dandelion Chai Tea or I could make myself a green smoothie.
And sometimes, I just want a green smoothie. It’s a great way to get in a full serving of fruit and vegetables in one simple drink – as well as serve as a meal replacement smoothie when I’m on the go or just to busy to sit down and eat.
So I’ve been making this Green Monster Smoothie Recipe, and it’s SO delicious. In fact, my kids beg me to make extra for them to enjoy too. It’s the perfect combination of leafy greens and fruit, as well as hemp seeds for protein. This green smoothie is incredibly satisfying too; it works well as a meal replacement smoothie.
Give it a try and tell me what you think.
