Please don’t go running off! I KNOW this smoothie looks anything but appetizing, but trust me- it is! It really is! It’s smooth, refreshing and chock FULL of vitamins and good-for-you fruits and veggies! The reason mine is brown instead of green (like the traditional green monster smoothie) is because I added strawberries and blueberries- those colors together give you….brown. Not pretty but darn tasty!

What is a green monster smoothie, you ask? It’s basically just a fruit smoothie with the addition of fresh spinach (an addition you can’t taste, but your body will thank you for!). Spinach is high in calcium, vitamin A and iron, to name a small few. This smoothie is a great solution for people wanting to get their daily fill of fresh fruits and vegetables; it’s SO good for you. I made these a lot when I was first pregnant…unfortunately, little Peach (as my mother has fondly starting referring to the baby) doesn’t care for them much anymore so I haven’t had one in awhile. Hopefully she (or he!) will come around soon, though! :)

The beauty in these smoothies is that you can use any fruit you like- bananas, strawberries, peaches, plums…whatever! They make a great breakfast or quick power lunch and keep you full and satisfied! Try one! You’ll love it!

Green Monster Smoothie

1 banana, roughly chopped
4 or 5 strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 small peach, peeled and roughly chopped
1 heaping cup (or more) fresh spinach leaves, thoroughly rinsed
splash vanilla soy milk
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 cup crushed ice

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
*this recipe makes a very large smoothie- two could easily share.

  1. Great recipe! I usually add avocado to mine too. You can’t taste it and it makes the smoothie very creamy – yum!

  2. I loved it! It is very fulfilling! I substituted soy milk for almond milk unsweetened and tasted great! Recommended! My husband, who doesn’t like bananas, didn’t complain! 🙂 Great for kids/adults who won’t eat spinach!

  4. Try adding a roughly chopped carrot, fresh pineapple (a couple spears), 1/4 of an avocado, 1/2 of a champagne mango, baby bok choy, chia seeds, 1/2 an apple. Yes you get a lot of smoothie but consider it a meal.

  6. Made my 1 “green” smoothie and completely failed… flushed it down the drain, i literally couldn’t drink it.
    What i used:
    1 cup natural soy milk
    1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
    1 medium tomato
    4 leafs of lettuce
    2 tablespoons of goji berries
    1 medium peach

    I prolly just made a horrible combo, i will try again soon :/

    Yeah, that’s a pretty odd combo. Maybe start with something a little simpler- like just fruits, spinach, and yogurt.

  10. Loved this recipe! However, did not soy milk so substituted with almond milk and coconut water. And no honey substituted with 2 tsp. sugar cinnamon. And 1/2 c mixed blue, black, and ras berries! A excellent tasting smoothie. Since, I use a lot of frozen fruit on this one. But like to use fresh for my juicer, the harder fruit like whole pineapple cut, oranges, & apples and other harder vegetables in my juicer. Then the frozen stuff I put with my juice, in my blender and finish it off. Delicious!:-)

  16. Love smoothies. I make mine with a cup of unsweetened almond milk and 1 scoop of pea protein powder and 1 container plain not fat yogurt if u want high protein you can add a serving of liquid egg whites. All frozen fruit so it stays cold. Can take my time drinking this very filling high protein non bloating. Will try the frozen spinach.
