I didn't lie when I said I've been on a smoothie kick lately!
Earlier this year, I brought you all an avocado chocolate smoothie and strawberry banana smoothie, and today I'm sharing this healthy mint chip smoothie.
This paleo mint chocolate chip smoothie is made with avocado and spinach to get that vibrant green color, as well as provide a host of beneficial nutrients.
- paleo and vegan
- dairy free
- nut free option (swap almond milk for coconut milk)
- fruit sweetened - only sweetened with bananas
- easy to make
- minimal ingredients
Each time I've made this smoothie, my two youngest kids hover nearby [impatiently] waiting for a bite. Needless to say, this is a great recipe to share with the kiddos!
Here's what you need to make this vegan mint chip smoothie:
- frozen ripe bananas
- hemp protein (optional)
- vanilla extract
- peppermint flavoring
- almond milk (coconut milk for nut free)
- dark chocolate chips
The hemp protein is optional. It can either be left out or substituted with collagen peptides or your favorite protein powder.
I used peppermint flavoring to give this smoothie it's minty flavor. Peppermint extract or a few fresh mint leaves would work as well, but you'll have to adjust the quantity.
