The Abominable Green Monster

Posted by Lauren on Wednesday, March 28, 2012

If you ask me, I full-heartedly agree with what they say: "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day". How awesome my breakfast is usually defines how awesome my day becomes. As you can imagine, without a healthy and hearty breakfast, my day is shot. Anyone else feel that way?

Recently, I've become addicted to green monster smoothies in the morning. Not only are they refreshing, but they offer a turbo charge for the week. Full of antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins, and other goodness, you really can't go wrong with a green monster smoothie recipe! I adapted my recipe from Naturally Ella's version because I felt that without the dash of oats and squirt of honey, the smoothie was too grassy tasting for me.
