Green Monster

I finally got the nerve to try a Green Monster, and just like everyone has stated, you really don't taste the spinach. At least I didn't with the combination of items I used and I didn't go overboard with the spinach. I mean, this was my first time and all, baby steps! Here's what I included:

8 oz light cranberry juice
1 banana
strawberries (a handful)
blackberries (a handful)
8 oz plain yogurt
spinach (a handful)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein
ice

That's it. It was quite good! I'll try it again with more spinach next time. Not sure if I'll ever get to the point of trying a green monster that is truly green, since the color isn't too appealing to me, but perhaps in time. For now, I'll stick with my concoction with a limited amount of green coloring.
