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.

  5. I’ve been making these for the last week, absolutely love them! I add a teaspoon of spirulina and a teaspoon of bee pollen granules for even more goodness x

  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 :/


    amy Reply:

    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.

  19. Nice smoothie for people to get started with because its will taste sweet. Good recipe to add things like flaxseed. People just need to be careful of all the sugar claories from the amount of fruit and honey.
