Incredible Hulk Smoothie

Hello Fitties,
    how are y'all during this cold weekend??? As stated in my last post I've been staying inside and surprisingly have been able to keep up on my workouts. Now the clean eating part, not so much. Anyhoot, I wanted to post to show off my +Vitamix ....... I mean to show a green smooothie recipe I have been using for a while now. Below are the pics and the recipe, enjoy :).
Recipe on my Chalkboard
My VitamiX :-)

Frozen Spinach, I used 2 bowls.
1/2 a banana

2 strawberries

4 mango chunks

Handful of pineapple chunks

1 large carrot chopped

Thumb size ginger slivered

1 cup Coconut water and 1 cup water

All in the mix

     All the fruits and vegetables, except the carrot, were frozen. Also, for people just starting out with green smoothies I suggest you put a sweet juice such as pineapple or mango instead of the coconut water. It took me a while to ween myself off using juices in my smoothies but either way they are still quite healthy and low in sugar. I used to drink this only before workouts but now since my circuits are more intense and longer I drink this with a slice of raisin bread and peanut butter.
      Try it out and see how you like it. You may be surprised how much you will like this drink.


  1. Nice name for the smoothies and nice pics. You're green smoothie actually doesn't sound that bad.

  2. Thanks, try it out and let me know how you like it. In my opinion it tastes like a nice tropical drink. Plus, its a great way to get your veggies in for the day.

  3. I'm going to try it out when I'm not in broke mode. Lol

  4. Surprisingly, green smoothies are rather cheap to make. All the fruits, except bananas, in this recipe come from a 3 gallon bag of frozen fruits I get at costco for $9.00. Trust me, with the small amount of fruit used a bag like this will last for over a month. The coconut water is what I feel is the most expensive thing to get. So if you want to try now use a bit of fruit juice as the liquid ingredient. Trust, it will taste good.

  5. Ooooh where did you get that chalkboard?

    1. Hey Curleedst, I actually painted the chalkboard on the wall. They sell different color chalkboard paints at lowes. It was fairly easy to do, just took forever and a day to dry :-/
