10/22 Yummy Recipe for Green Monster Smoothie

Many parents, health buffs and now kiddos are trying the Green Smoothies.  At our house, we use lots of items, but mostly the things we buy every week.  It's a great small treat to share and perfect for the Halloween week!

Ingredients used in our home:

1/2 cup Orange Juice
1 cup of Greek Yogurt (plain or vanilla)
6-8 Large Frozen Strawberries (or unfrozen, but then add 1/2 cup of ice)
1 cup of Spinach
4-6 Baby Carrots
1/2 Banana (if you use a whole one, its really over powering)

Extras we add sometimes:
1 cup frozen blueberries
Ground flax seed
Chocolate syrup (within the blending or just on top!)
1 orange

You can really add your favorite fruits plus a couple of "hidden" veggies to make it green!  Happy Halloween treat!
