Chocolate Green Monster

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

As an update to my last blog :

So I did try adding unsweetened cocoa powder! I did add an additional packet of Stevia and blended up the amazingness. AWFUL color! But trust me, tasted pretty darn good!



Frozen Strawberries - 35 grams (about 3 small)
Frozen Banana - 50 grams (about half a small banana)
Spinach - 65 grams (about two cups)
Almond milk - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Pea Protein - 8 grams (about a tablespoon)
Unsweetened cocoa - 5 grams (about a tablespoon)
Three packets of Stevia (to taste)

135 calories ; 22g carbs ; 3g fat ; 11g protein



Throw it in a blender, throw in a straw, ignore the color, be amazed at the great taste, and drink to your health!



I also tried some freeze-dried fruit from Target today.



I had half of each bag, sharing the rest with Aubrey. It's a lot of sugar (which I could feel COURSING through me afterwards) but the taste is great.


Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon


Organic Banana, Organic Pineapple, Apple, and Papaya

I would probably have only half a bag of just one kind next time so I wouldn't have such a sugar high. Although I did drink the chocolate green monster afterwards, so I didn't stay feeling crazy for long.

    I liked that taste of the fruit a more then the other dried fruit we tried before, I just wish it didn't have so much sugar in it.
