Recipe type: Beverage, Breakfast
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (canned)
  • 1 cup frozen spinach (or 3-4 cups fresh)
  • ½ cup ice cubes (4-5 large cubes)
  • ½ medium banana (or a whole, if you'd like it sweeter!)
  • 1 tablespoon plain whey protein
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Add smoothie ingredients (except chocolate chips), liquids first, to a blender. A high speed blender will work best, but try adding a bit of almond milk if using a regular blender and having difficulty getting it going. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Once the spinach and ice are completely blended, the smoothie should look like fluffy like mint ice cream. Taste, and adjust peppermint extract to taste. Add 1 tsp honey if using, and blend until incorporated.
  3. Add chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate, and pulse for 10-20 seconds, leaving the chocolate in small pieces but not completely blended in.
