The Green Monster

In my quest to be healthier, I have been reading up on juicing and its effects on the body. A friend recommended I try it, and I actually like it! I have been drinking carrot apple juice three times a day. And a 200ml yummy drink is composed of 3 apples and 3 carrots already! Can you imagine packing that much nutrients in a drink? (Can you imagine eating 3 carrots in one sitting?)

I want to try this green juice though. It says it is made up of spinach and bananas with milk (and nuts) and it seems like a complete power meal to me already – protein (spinach + nuts + milk), fruit (bananas) and veggies! If I can do this once a day, replacing one meal for the next three weeks, I am sure I can lose weight and maybe even shop at stores I’ve been dying to shop at (maybe I should keep the eddie bauer coupons 2012 I got!).

1 frozen sliced banana
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup 0% Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or other kind of milk)
4 cups baby spinach (or more, or less)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
