Green Monster


To start the weekend off right, I made my first "Green
 Monster" following Kristin's recipe @ Iowa Girl Eats


Green Monsters are similar to green smoothies, but thicker... right? 


I love the frothy foam that bubbles to the top!



Question: Anyone else a fan of drinking the foam on top 
of beverages- like smoothies, lattes, cappuccinos and sodas?

I used to HATE foam. I'm more tolerant now that I'm a coffee drinker. My coffeemaker even has special foam tabs that I can add to my drinks, it's amazeballs!

Green monsters are awesome! They fill me up and taste so good! I'm actually the opposite with you when it comes to foam. I can't stand it! haha! :)

Yum, I love green monsters. However, I actually can't stand foam on drinks!

Yes- I loove the foam! Like on a good beer, right? ;)
I especially love foam on coffee drinks. Just last week I made some coffee with soy milk and stuck it in the blender to make it extra frothy and foamy...and I the liquid was too hot! Pressure built up in the blender and the lid flew off! Scalding hot (but foamy!) coffee flew all over me and my kitchen!

I love foam- I usually spoon it off the top of my latte before drinking the rest :-) That looks like a huge green monster!

I found my brother's old expresso maching the other day and the milk frother was my favorite part. I made pot after pot of tea and kept putting frothed milk on top. Twas amazing :)

I love green (monster) smoothies! Every time I have one I almost feel how all the nutrients direct go into fueling my body. :)

The foam question ... heh. It depends on the foam, I'd say. I used to love milk foam on coffee or cappuccino, but now that I don't drink milk anymore, it's something on the miss list. :( Haven't tried if it works with almond milk, too. Foam on smoothies is not so much my cup of tea, I like when all the ingredients are nicely combined and there are no layers.

Yes! I love the foam too, especially on lattes.

The container that your green monster is in is so cute!

I always thought green monsters and green smoothies were the same thing. No? Haha.

As for foam: YES! I love the foam on drinks, especially homemade juice. :3

I don't like the foam--I like to get to the good stuff :)

I am all about the foam...and I'm all about the straw. I HAVE to use a straw when drinking a smoothie or a milkshake. Thank you for sharing, sweet heart. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Rest, rejuvenate and spread some love!

I love sparkling sodas etc. I'm not wild about the actual foams though. I think the green monster glass is wonderful!

I'm really weird I guess because I LOATHE drinking just the foam!! I prefer a little foam/a little drink in every sip.

Congrats on your first green monster! I'm addicted to those things :)

I think green monster is just a "catchy" name for a green smoothie. And I say catchy in quotations, because I hate it. But I love green smoothies.
