AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is officially in theaters and if you caught my Iron Man Smoothie post yesterday, you saw that my son and I headed out to the movies yesterday to see it. We both were literally counting down the days until this movie was release and let me tell you, if you haven’t seen it yet, YOU NEED TO GO THIS WEEKEND. Seriously this movie did not disappoint. We were both left speechless multiple times throughout the movie. Leading up to the release, we had a little Avengers movie marathon and another one of the recipes I made for our movie watching was this Hulk Smash Smoothie.
Before I get into how to make this delicious Hulk Smash smoothie, lets talk about AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR for a quick minute. Now I can’t go into too much detail because of that whole #ThanosDemandsYourSilence thing but this movie left me with so many emotions. I literally was on the the end of my seat. I laughed. I cried. Literally, so many tears.
I had to sit in the theater for a few minutes after the movie ended just to process all my thoughts. If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, get out there and see this movie. It was everything you want in a Marvel adventure. I don’t know how I’m going to wait another year for the next one.
One thing I definitely will be doing is watching all of my favorite Marvel heroes on DVD over and over again until the next installment comes out.
Probably on the couch drinking one of these yummy smoothies. Yesterday’s Iron Man Smoothie was delicious but this Hulk Smash Smoothie is beyond good.
Don’t let the green smoothie thing scare you away either. I am pretty much grossed out by all vegetables. There are very few I like (I know, I know. It’s something I’m working on) but seriously, one thing I can get enough of is fresh spinach. I only eat spinach salads, I put it in a lot of my recipes and especially my green smoothies.
The fruit easily overpowers any spinach taste you think there might be and it’s so good!
This smoothie is really a grape, spinach, avocado smoothie just named after one of our favorite Marvel characters. That’s basically all that’s in it aside from the orange juice base. With flavors like that, you just know it’s going to be delicious.
It’s so good! But don’t take my word for it! Give this Hulk Smash Smoothie a try and tell me what you think.
