Green Monster Juice

Who said you have to drink alcohol on St. Patrick's Day?  I was inspired by this Halloween treat months ago, which I never made, and thought I could transform the monster into an all fruit and veggie Green Monster Juice for St. Patrick's Day; it would also be perfect for Halloween. 

For this juice you'll need:

1 cup frozen mango
1 red apple, chopped
1 banana, split in half
several handfuls of baby spinach
handful of flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cucumber, chopped with the skin on
2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds
1-2 cups of water (depending on desired consistency)
optional - few teaspoons of honey - if your banana is not ripe or extra ripe

4 clear plastic disposable cups and Sharpie to design your monster cups

1. Create monster faces on your clear plastic disposable cups with a Sharpie.  Set aside.

2. In a blender, add frozen mango, apple, banana, spinach, cucumber, parsley, chia seeds, and honey (optional).  Start by adding about 1 cup of water and liquify all ingredients.

3. Depending on the consistency, you may want to add more water. 

4. Pour Green Monster juice into your monster cups. 

Happy St. Patty's Day!  Cheers!
