Green Monster Smoothie

So its Monday, yay! NOT!! I mean I don't hate Monday's but I don't love them either. 
Only thing I do love about them is my Body Pump class is first thing in the morning so I feel like I'm well prepared for that the day how to bring me! 

Now I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I know I did, spent some amazing time with the hubs which is always nice plus I made another yummy and delicious smoothie!! 
It's super easy to make and I know you'll love it! 
So now onto the recipe...


Yes, I know what you're thinking "another freaking smoothie recipe!" 
I mean my hubby said the same thing. 
Then I giggled and thought "man I really do love making smoothies!"
I mean what person doesn't love a great and healthy smoothie. 
It's super fast, healthy, good on-the-go breakfast and not to mention kids LOVE them! 
Now for this smoothie I was trying to stick with most things green, hence the Green Monster Smoothie for the name. But I added some mango because I love, love, love them and they added a little sweetness to balance the tartness of the granny smith apple. 
So because I know you love smoothies just as much as I do and you're totally going to give this one a try! 
Maybe next time I will add kale as my "green" just maybe! 
So now go and fix this treat for you and your kiddos but this stuff is the bomb! 
Did I really just do that? 
Yep, I guess I did! Enjoy!  
Oh and did I mention my smoothie photos still suck!

  2. Yours is such a beautiful shade of green! Mine are more like puke green but I use strawberries too so I guess the mix of red and green can't be a good one lol I am definitely trying this recipe this week!
