Green Monster Mash

video

Yes, I’m sorry whoever sang “Monster Mash”

I was piddling in the kitchen early one morn,
When from my blender, a new concoction was born.
I mixed spinach and fruit, from my supplies,
And suddenly to my surprise…

I made a smoothie.
I made a Green Monster smoothie.
A monster smoothie.
It was an emerald beauty.
I made a smoothie.
It was all green and fruity.
I made a smoothie.
I made a Green monster smoothie.

From their bedrooms right up the stairs,
All my kids rushed down to get theirs’.
Cuz this beat any smoothie that they mighta fixed.
They came to get a jolt from my VitaMix.

They drank my smoothie.
They drank my Green Monster smoothie.
My monster smoothie.
It was an emerald beauty.
They stole my smoothie.
It was all green and fruity.
They drank my smoothie.
They drank my Green monster smoothie.

I whipped up one more batch.
Was ready to drink it down the hatch.
But suddenly my wife Anita,
Snatched it before I see’d her.
The scene was rockin', all were digging the taste,
Suckin’ on straws, not a drop to waste.
The glasses were piled up in the sink.
The whole family chanting, “We love this drink.”

They love my smoothie.
They love my Green Monster smoothie.
My monster smoothie.
It was an emerald beauty.
They love my smoothie.
It was all green and fruity.
They love my smoothie.
They love my monster smoothie.

Now my family they had had their fill,
So I made one more smoothie still.
I turned my head and said “Sumb*tch!”
“Whatever happened to my smoothie filled with spinach?”

Who took my smoothie?
Who took my Green Monster smoothie?
My monster smoothie.
It was an emerald beauty.
Who took my smoothie?
It was all green and fruity.
Who took my smoothie?
Who took my monster smoothie?

It turns out that I began my celebration prematurely,
Cuz my smoothie was taken by my own mother Shirley.
The recipe’s below, but give credit where credit is due.
When they ask where it came from, tell ‘em Jack Sh*t sent it to you.

You can make my smoothie.
You can make my Green Monster smoothie.
My monster smoothie.
It is an emerald beauty.
You can make my smoothie.
It was all green and fruity.
You can make my smoothie.
You can make my monster smoothie.
And have my monster smoothie.

  2. Why does your green smoothie look so appetizing and mine looks like something the toilet brought in?

  3. I'm trying to convince myself that it tastes good. It's the green thing that is holding me back. I don't know why. The green St. Patty's Day beer never seemed to bother me, but then again I was usually drunk. That always helps.

    I haven't thought about the Monster Mash in like 35 years. It was on some silly song record I had as a kid. Funny stuff Jack.

    Happy Halloween!

  6. These green smoothies are making the rounds on the blogs & everyone seems to like them! I have not tried it yet & your recipe is a bit different from others. I do not digest milk products & even that great Greek yogurt gets to me eventually so I am afraid to make these even with soy milk but I may have to some day based on all the great review no matter which recipe it is!

    Loved the take on Monster Mash by the way!

  8. Ok, I started to laugh when I got to the part, "glasses were piled up in the sink, the whole family chanting we love this drink."

    That sounds like our family, and the visual is just funny.

    hmm...should I make this?

  9. This was a great post. Cool that the family loved it. Mine won't touch the stuff if it's green lol. So we usually go with a reeses smoothie (peanut butter/chocolate protein powder). I've put the spinach in mine though and I'm with Amy mine usually looks pretty yucky not that pretty bright green yours is *smile*.

  16. I just can't bring myself to try one of those Green Monsters. I'm just a wimp!

  17. Too funny! I'll have to try this! It sounds like a smoothie I'd like. I might put in some cacao nibs instead of the cocoa powder though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is it sad I know who sang the original? Bobby "Boris" Picket and the Cryptkickers. And the fact that I had a discussion about this song just last week...oh boy.

    I don't know if I'm brave enough to try the recipe but I am thoroughly enjoying the parody!

  26. I'd been thinking about making a green smoothie for a few weeks and just never got around to it. I guess all I needed was a song! I tried your recipe (modified only cuz of my lack of supplies) and it was delicious!!! Thanks Jack Sh*t! Loving my smoothie!! ... and loving your blog! You're the sh*t!
