Mint Chip Smoothie

smoothieI was looking for something festive to have on Christmas Eve morning, but absolutely love starting my day with a smoothie.  There is nothing like all the vitamins and antioxidants a smoothie can provide.  So, I started with my basic formula: almond milk and chocolate protein and went from there.  It turned out delicious!  The must haves for this are the cacoa nibs.  If you haven’t tried; they are amazing.  They really enhance any smoothie. They can be found at Whole Foods and are loaded with fiber, magnesium and iron.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 serving chocolate protein (my favorite is Garden of Life Smooth Chocolate)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacoa nibs
  • 1 banana (frozen if possible)
  • 2 handfuls of fresh organic spinach
  • 1 drop of Young Living peppermint essential oil
  • 1/2 packet of SweetLeaf Stevia (optional if you need to sweetened it up)

Blend and enjoy!
