Chocolate – good.
Fruit – good.
Chocolate + Fruit = Now you are talking my language.
I wanted something sweet, simple, chocolatey and would incorporate blueberries. Nothing is more simple than this:
Ingredients: 12 drops
1 1/2 cup chocolate (I used a combination of dark, milk and semi-sweet since I had odds and ends to use up)
1 cup blueberries
Melt chocolate on stove top, once smooth and glistening, remove from heat and stir in the blueberries until they are covered with chocolate.
Using a spoon scoop onto a baking sheet or slip mat. Cool in refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened.
impatiently patiently for the fridge to do its thing.
Enjoy your fruit and have some chocolate too
This is my second Green Monster and it too was delicious. Not sure if I liked the ‘Peppy’ Carob Green Monster better because they play on different taste buds but nonetheless you should try both!
This Green Monster is great because in addition to all the green power you get from the spinach, you have banana (good source of potassium and aid in belly fat loss, and blueberries – those little blue guys that pack a mighty punch when it comes to anti-oxidants (has one of the highest values for fruits).
With all those delicious ingredients, there is no way this smoothie can’t be bad way to start your morning so give one a blend!
2-3 cups spinach
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup blueberries
1 Tbsp. Flax
3-4 ice cubes
Add into a blender (flax, spinach, banana, blueberries, milk, ice) and give a swirl. Angela from Oh She Glows recommends that order so that the flax and spinach are weighted down by the other ingredients and don’t stick to the sides of the blender. I have an inverted single serve blender so I just put my ingredients in reverse order of and it worked perfectly!
