Tropical Green Monster

Tropical Green Monster

Hello there! Yes, it’s been a while. I unintentionally stepped back from this space over the past month, and I think I know why. I feel like I get into cooking ruts, especially at the beginning of each season (well, except for maybe fall and winter…soup is my jam). Over the past few weeks, I’ve tried to simplify what I cook and how we eat, not to mention try to eat healthier whole foods. That’s not to say I won’t be baking this summer (I have a batch ofthese in the freezer for when my sweet tooth kicks in), but I am trying to cut back on sugar, and the more fruits and vegetables I eat, the easier that is to do.  Expect some healthy veggie-full recipes in the near future!

I’ve been obsessing over smoothies this summer, averaging at least four a week! Strawberry banana is my fave when I want an all fruit smoothie, but this one is probably my favorite green one. Green smoothies aren’t new to me or probably many of you, but this one is worth sharing. I got my inspiration from a recipe I saw onhere on Eat Live Run, which I also recommend. SO good! Like all smoothies, the proportions and ingredients are up to you, so use this as inspiration! The measurements below are rough measurements. I hope you enjoy this green treat as much as I do! 🙂
