A Question About Green Monsters....

I've been reading many rave reviews about Green Monster Smoothies and how beneficial they are.I'm trying to eat more fresh veg and cut down on meat,so they seem the perfect way to get more iron in my diet.I'm just not convinced about the taste.

Are they palatable? Does the spinach really impart no taste? What fruit ratio do you use?

Also,I had an inadvertent day totally on track yesterday.........

B: 2 x Wholemeal toast with light Dairy Lea cheese triangles

Walking group for service users at work - 2 hours brisk walk pushing a wheelchair.

L: Chicken - mayo - sweetcorn panini

D: Steamed asparagus,carrots and broccoli with a potato

S: M & S low fat Greek yogurt with mango and passion fruit compote (I'm freaking addicted to these things - they come in strawberry and morello cherry too.All 3 are absolutely delish)
Punnet strawberries.
Fresh OJ

GO ME!!!!!!!!!!! Let's hope I can stick to this.I bought another 1950's dress on E-bay to fit into.

I was a BIG skeptic when it came to Green Monsters. I didn't believe that you couldn't taste the spinach yadda yadda but seriously, you can't. I usually add:
-1/2 cup to 1 cup of strawberries
-a quarter of a banana (they really overpower the smoothie)
-1/4 cup to 1/2 cup milk or vanilla yogurt, or sometimes both
-one hand full of spinach
-3 to 4 ice cubes
*if the strawberries aren't very sweet, I add 1/2 tbsp of honey
They're so versatile, just add a bunch of stuff and it's bound to come out tasty and very nutritious. I hope you decide to bite the bullet and try it, I LOVE them! Keep on track!
