Here's how to make one of my favorite smoothies. It was originally published on my blog taraleighlovesyou.com. It's a mint chocolate chip one and it's awesome. It tastes even better when you make it while rocking out to your favorite music. I got down to a Reba Jam by Phish from Alpine Valley 2010.
This smoothie is not only healthy, but it seriously tastes like mint chocolate chip ice-cream. It's crazy!!!!
Here's what's in it:
1 handful greens (whatever you like...spinach, kale, chard)
1/4 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)
1 capful of organic peppermint extract
Milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
5 figs or dates
Optional superfoods (I used chia seeds, spiralina and nori seaweed powder)
Place everything in the blender and blend while rocking out. If using a Vitamix, start at 1 and move to 10 and then set the gear shift to high and it will go out of control. Then pour it into a glass and enjoy it because it's soooooo good!
Feel free to share this video with your friends to inspire more green in their kitchens. Comment below about how excited you are to try this smoothie.
The awesome in me sees and bows to the awesome in you,
