My first green monster

For beginners (as in, this is very sweet and you can't taste the green veg -at- -all-):-
  • 1x frozen banana (I freeze them in chunks for ease of blending)
  • 1 scoop (25g) whey protein (MP* True Whey Cookies and Cream flavour)
  • 200ml skimmed milk
  • 40g baby spinach
Put everything in a suitable container/blender and blend to a smooth, thick paste.  I use a cheap hand blender (much like this one in the "under £20 price range", which I've had for over 10 years and used loads) and that works well.  Serve in a bowl - it's pretty thick with that frozen banana.  Top with something with a very different texture - in my case 40g of Dorset Cereals Tasty Toasted Spelt.

Soooo pretty.  But way too sweet for me; and too much volume.  I could go with a lot less banana and a lot more green leafy veg, which would make it a bit less thick and voluminous.  Not bad for a first shot though.
