Mint Chocolate Chip Green Smoothie

Nutrition can be a VERY confusing topic.  But if there is one thing that everyone can agree on, its that we need to include a variety of green leafy vegetables in our diet.  Sounds easy enough, but many people, especially kids, just don't like the bitter taste of  green leafy vegetables!  Even if you have the BEST intentions, if you don't like something, chances are, you will not eat it! Even in my house with two kids who love sautéed kale in olive oil and garlic, I had a really hard time getting my 10-year old daughter to drink a green smoothie for breakfast.  Not being one to give up, many recipes later, I finally found one that blew her away!  If traditional green smoothies are just not your thing, this smoothie is going to rock your world!  The best part is that it literally tastes better than ice cream! Minty Chocolate Chip Smoothie 1.5 scoops of Sunwarrior raw vanilla rice protein powder 2 large handfuls of organic baby spinach (or leafy green of your choice) 1 tablespoon of raw organic almond butter 1 cup of organic unsweetened almond milk (I make my own-so easy!) Fresh mint-to taste (I used 2-3 full sprigs) 1 tablespoon of raw cacao nibs 1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract 1 small banana 1 cup of ice cubes Blend everything in your favourite high powered blender (I used my Vitamix) and ENJOY! This nutrient dense, balanced and tummy loving smoothie will satisfy your craving for ice cream while keeping your nutrition goals on track! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
