I’ve seen many variations of the green monster “detox” smoothie going around after the binge-eating holiday season. But I wasn’t quite ready to try out that green concoction despite many people saying they cannot tell there is spinach in it. Sorry for being a skeptic, but I had to try one that at least looked like it was still mostly fruit.
When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be my stepping stone. Strangely enough I could taste the single tablespoon of peanut butter more than the full cup of spinach in this. But the fruit was definitely the stronger flavor over all. I may be trying out that green monster soon after all!
