Tropical Green Monster Smoothie from My Baking Heart

I think I’m most likely the last to jump on board the Green Monster Express. Bloggers and foodies alike have been posting different variations of this green-tinted smoothie for a few years now. And to be honest, I was always a little grossed out by it. The color and mix of ingredients completely turned me off.

But since I’ve started training again, I figured I’d give one a try. And after a seven-mile run, it was just what I needed to refuel myself and prepare for a heavy dinner of margaritas and Tex-Mex. The best part? I was shocked at how much I loved it! All of these good-for-me ingredients, wrapped up in one yummy smoothie? Why didn’t I try it sooner?!
