Besides chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate mint is about my favourite flavour combo!
I start most days with a green smoothie of some sort – and more often than not it’s this one. I know so many people find green smoothies intimidating and maybe aren’t that into them. I get it – drinking your greens seems like it may be sludgey and fibrous and all around not tasty. I’m here to tell you that this smoothie will change your mind!!
I’ve made it for so many friends and family who have been skeptical but have all been so pleasantly surprised with how creamy and delicious it tastes – almost like an ice cream smoothie. This one really does benefit from a vitamix or other high powered blender in order to get the creamy and smooth consistency.
You’ll feel good about starting your day with this one .. trust me!
