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.

    Does it taste good? Or is something you choke down?

    If it didn’t taste good I wouldn’t blog it. It’s delicious!


    Kathy Reply:

    All you taste is fruit – DELICIOUS!!

    daibreak Reply:

    You seriously can not even taste the spinach and if you use a ripe enough banana (I let them over-ripen and the freeze them), you won’t need honey. Also, I eliminate soy and dairy (I eat Paleo) from mine by just freezing the bananas and throwing in a few ice cubes. It’s wonderfully creamy just like that. :)


    Judy Reply:

    Great ideas. Allergic to dairy and soy. Can’t wait to try this recipes with your changes.

    Allison Reply:

    I’m so excited. I LOVE smoothies and just happen to have some fresh spinach in my frig. I’m going to try this tomorrow. I put my smoothie in a large Tervis Tumbler with a lid/straw and a design on the outside, so I won’t see the color anyway! Thanks for sharing!!!


    Andrea Reply:

    What a great idea, Allison, about putting it into a tumbler. I was just thinking, how could I get my teenage son, who eats very few fruits and veggies, but always asks for smoothies, to drink this with the color of it? I will def. try that idea, thanks again. :)

  14. I am afraid I would have to pretend it was chocolate. Thinking about the spinach that is in it would have me stopped dead in my tracks! No wonder your little peach doesn’t like it! She is starting her no like list early!


    Comment by Jean — July 28, 2011 @ 1:43 PM

  15. I have just started making these! I make them at night, put them in the freezer, and take them to work with me. I let it sit on my desk from about 6 am until around 8 or 9 and they are perfect to start sippin on. Mine are made from banana, Almond Silk Chocolate Soy Milk, 1 tbs peanut butter and 2 hand fulls of spinach. I am thinking of trying one this weekend with mango, coconut soy milk, banana, cucumber and spinach, (been kinda scared of messing with the ingrediants but may try to be brave lol)

  16. I LOVE this! My 5 year old thought it was a milkshake and wanted to try it too, he LOVED it!My family already eats a wide array of fruits and vegetables, but I never considered blending them together! These smoothies will be terrific for the kids breakfast when school starts! They will also be a wonderful addition to my autistic son’s diet.


    Comment by Michele — August 5, 2011 @ 1:34 PM

  17. Hmmm, I thought it was a choco drink at first… But, fruity looks good to. I have everything but spinach, but I have lettuce, and I ran out of yogurt. BUT, I have some frozen blueberry yogurt I made, and maybe I can use that in my version. Mmmm good idea!


    Comment by Lannae — August 6, 2011 @ 2:46 PM

  18. Just made something very similar. Mine came out purple from the blueberries. All my fruit was frozen, so I used only 2 ice cubes and the rest water to get the blender going. Very tasty frozen treat!


    Comment by Lannae — August 6, 2011 @ 3:07 PM

  19. Our green smoothies often turn out brown. You were very brave to photograph yours! :lol: We alternate between green smoothies made w/lettuce, spinach and/or kale and cottage cheese/flax oil smoothies. I love both kinds, and both are so good for you!

  80. Been doing this for about 3 months. I alternate ingredients depending on what I have on hand. Try adding pineapple, oranges or a little chopped beet to the mix. The beet fixes the color if it’s objectionable and makes it a deep red color.

  87. This sounds so good!! I would change a couple of things, I would use almond or coconut milk and skip the honey, if you use a really ripe banana it will be sweet or substiture it for agave (lower on the GI) and if you wanted it to be thick and creamy….add about 1/4 to 1/2 avacado. Yes, I have done this and it is good! I did these type of things for my son when he didn’t want to eat due to epilepsy and the things we were going through at the time. Even though others thought I had lost my marbles I felt good knowing he was getting his nutrition even if it was blended all the time. He loved them!!!

  92. if you add a tablespoon of 100% grape juice concentrate, it gets rid of the brown color and tastes nice and sweet…no honey required EVER!

  104. I make a smoothie almost exactly like this, except I haven’t used peaches lately. I, also, add either chia seeds or sprouted flax seeds. I make it the night before and it keeps for two days. I also add a little lemon juice so the colour doesn’t go too brown and it tastes “brighter”.

    Also, if you freeze your fruits and veggies then you don’t have to add ice. Freeze them flat on a cookie sheet before you put them in a freezer bag so they don’t get mushy.

    Comment by Rick — April 23, 2013 @ 7:41 PM

  120. Awesome…. I drank these throughout my entire pregnancy and loved them- we use fresh kale in addition to spinach which really ups the nutrients even more!

    Incredibly,as much as I enjoyed them during pregnancy, I found while breastfeeding and needing the extra calories and wanting to keep my diet as optimal as possible these where a LIFESAVER especially for a quick easy meal- adding some ground flax/oats/chia seeds/hemp seriously increases the “bulk” and this beauty of a drink has been a staple in our family for a few years now!

    Our son is not 2 and while he can be a pit picky with his veggie eating he LOVES his “green drinks” and I never thought if would be this easy to get LOADS of kale/chard/spinach into a toddler!!

    We live on these… and like you pointed out, so many variations with what ever is in season- possibilities are endless!!!
    Great share on the recipe!! :)

  128. 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.


    Comment by Janice — July 1, 2013 @ 10:04 AM

  130. 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.

  134. 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!:-)

  139. 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.
