Strawberry Banana Green Monster Protein Smoothie

June 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Lately, I’ve found myself drinking more smoothies than usual since I picked up a giant bag of vanilla whey protein powder at Costco.

To give you some background on my smoothie history, I originally learned how to make Green Monster smoothies from Oh She Glows. Since then, my own Green Monster recipe has gradually changed. I’m a creature of habit so I almost always throw the same exact things into the blender.

Luckily, I was feeling spontaneous on Wednesday and decided to mix it up. :) Let’s just say that I’ll definitely be mixing it up more if the results are always this good!

Strawberry Banana Green Monster Protein Smoothie

  • 1/2 frozen banana, sliced
  • Four frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
  • A few handfuls of spinach (About two cups worth. I like frozen spinach to add some ice to the smoothie, but unfrozen is fine too.)
  • 1 tbsp of nut butter (optional)

Makes one big serving. :)

I find that order doesn’t matter too much, but I tend to put my ingredients into the blender in this order:
Banana, strawberries, protein powder, nut butter, Greek yogurt, almond milk, spinach.

Blend until smooth and enjoy!
