Mint Chip Smoothie
Makes 2 18 -Ounce Servings
Tucked beneath a very convincing ice cream-like flavor, a wealth of beneficial spinach awaits you in this smoothie. It’s so good it almost makes a person wonder why spinach isn’t used in all minty treats. I love how the cacao nibs provide a bit of dark-chocolate crunch without being overpowering.
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Taste, and sweeten as desired.
Add 1/4 teaspoon chlorella powder (or to taste).
2 cups frozen spinach
1⁄4 cup raw cashews
3 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons (packed) minced fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups rice milk (original variety)
1/2 cup coconut water
sweetener, to taste (optional)
Smoothies for every mood!
