Greenish-Brown Monster

i thought i'd post another green monster from breakfast this morning. this time, no protein powder and its actually a brown monster because of the ingredients. again, not pretty but sooo good!

Berry-Banana Green Monster
(serves 1 - 225 calories)

1/2 c frozen raspberries
1/2 c frozen strawberries
1/2 banana
1 handful baby spinach
1/2 c blueberry-pomegranate v8 v-fusion
1/2 c low sugar orange juice
1 tsp agave nectar
1 tsp flax seed
1 c ice

blend till smooth and enjoy!

one more tip:
i used to loathe cleaning the blender after my almost daily smoothie but i discovered an easy way. simply rinse out the blender and lid. then add a drop of dish soap and fill 3/4 full with hot water. put on the lid and blend at various speeds. it works so well and gets the blender clean! i do take the blender apart every 3rd or 4th time to thoroughly clean it or throw it in the dishwasher when i run it. hope that helps. i was excited when i tried it!
