The Green Monster

It was a scary moment.  I cringed as I dropped the spinach into my Ninja blender.  In spite of the green color I took a gulp of the drink.  And…. I smiled!  Surprisingly, the dreaded Green Monster was delicious.  I’m now hooked on the healthy drink and enjoy it anytime of the day.  Whether it be breakfast, lunch or a snack, don’t be surprised to see a green mustache on this girl!
