How do you Monster?

3 Comments

Sunday I ran my 18 miles outside, showered and dressed for spin class. My post recovery fuel was a Green Monster with Hammer Vanilla Soy.

For anyone who doesn’t Green Monster, you need to asap! They are delicious and packed full of nutrients. Basically you make a standard smoothie and add green spinach and you can’t even taste it, but it adds such a boost to your energy.

My Hammer Vanilla Soy Green Monster post long run is:

  • Banana
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • One scoop of Hammer Vanilla Soy
  • Spoonful of almond butter (any nut butter will do, or you can omit)
  • Big handful of raw fresh spinach

Blend in a blender and then add ice and blend again.

Depending on the amount of ice and ingredients it can make quite a bit. I store the extra in a cup and freeze for later.

How do you Monster? What is your favorite smoothie mix?

  1. You look so cute with your green monster. I was never big into them but I nomally added a lot of spinach, protein powder and whatever other random things I could find in my fridge.

  2. My favorite Monster is pretty much the same as yours except that I use vanilla whey protein, frozen banana, and PB2 instead of almond butter.

    Good stuff!
