This green monster smoothie recipe is the best way I’ve found to add spinach into my smoothies and still enjoy the taste! Full of protein, flax, fruits, and vegetables.



  • 2 cups + of spinach
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tbs. flaxseed meal


  1. Place all ingredients in the blender in order given (so spinach is at the bottom). Blend until smooth. (Maybe it’s just my blender, but I can never get it to be completely homogenous. Usually I have lots of green flecks in it from the spinach, and you can see the flax a little bit.)
  2. Add ice cubes (optional) and blend until no ice chunks remain.
