How do you Monster?

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?
