Coconut-Mint Green Monster

I guess I was feeling a little adventurous this afternoon, but the results were very pleasing!  The coconut and mint in the recipe really came together nicely.  And as for the spinach, you can't taste it!  It just turns it green :)

1 frozen banana

2 cups of spinach
3 mint leaves
1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon flax
1 very vanilla Yoplait yogurt
1 cup vanilla soy milk

Notes / Directions
As explained in my Smoothie Basics, freeze yogurt in an ice tray for about an hour.  Use half of the frozen yogurt in the smoothie.  Put everything in the blender and blend till smooth.

-You can use any kind of milk, though I highly recommend vanilla soy.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Making one of these might be a bad idea because you'll never stop making them!

2 packages of hot chocolate
6 ice cubes
1 cup milk

Notes / Directions
Blend everything together, serve with whipped topping on top.

Apple Pie Smoothie

I love apple pie, I love apple sauce, I love apples, and I love smoothies!  So I made an apple pie smoothie!  It is so GOOD!  Probably one I won't make often just because of the preparation of the apples but it is still a keeper!

Check out my Smoothie Basics to get ideas and tips on how to make smoothies
Adapted from Once Upon a Cutting Board 

1 apple or about 1/2 cup applesauce

1 very vanilla Yoplait yogurt
1 1/2 graham crackers
1/2 cup oats (or less or none)
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
4 dashes of cinnamon
2 dashes of nutmeg
1 cup vanilla soy milk

Notes / Directions
Freeze yogurt in an ice tray for about an hour.  Peel, and chop apple.  Put in boiling water for 5 minutes and drain.  Add ingredients in blender.  Blend it all together.  If it's too thick, add more milk.

-Can use any kind of milk, I just like the added flavor of the vanilla soy.

This smoothie just got easier!!  I used applesauce instead of boiling an apple and it was SO good and required WAY less effort!  I didn't make this one often because I didn't like to peel the apple and boil it but now that I use applesauce, my woes are over!  I used like 1/4-1/2 cup applesauce.  ENJOY!!
