The Green Monster

The Green Monster is an amazing power-packed smoothie chock full of incredible benefits.

It contains living silica, fulvic acid, and chlorella. Wowee! Living silica helps with joint and connective tissue health. Fulvic acid is an incredible cell food with benefits too numerous to go into detail here today.

What makes the Green Monster so, green?green monster, chlorella, fulvic acid, living silica, banana, smoothie, snogging, swamp thing, antioxidant, joints, connective tissue,

That would be the chlorella, a micro-algae. Some of its benefits include:

  • strengthening our cells against foreign invaders (no, I don’t mean aliens)
  • binding to and removing heavy metals
  • helping to tonify and cleanse the body
  • promoting healthy, natural growth (anti-aging, anyone?)
  • it has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and wound healing properties

…and more.

 

The problem — It. Tastes. Like. Algae. What does algae taste like? I’d say it’s a cross between what one would expect from either

Sounds, delish, doesn’t it?

Not unless you like that kind of swamp stench in your mouth. However, there is a way to enjoy and reap the benefits of this potent superfood without feeling like you just snogged the Swamp Thing or the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Yay!

This tastes much more like a mint-chocolate chip smoothie than any foul creature from the bowels of the swamp or toilet. Although, Swamp Thing did do some pretty cool stuff.


Ingredients:

16 oz milk or mylk of your choice
1 banana
1 tsp Living Silica
3 drops Fulvic Zeolite or 10 drops Fulvic Acid
1 tsp Cracked-Cell Chlorella
1 TB cacao nibs
peppermint oil to taste
