Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie Recipe

mint chocolate chip smoothie to boost breast milk and support muscle recovery

I’ve always been a sucker for peppermint and chocolate—I can’t walk past a Girl Scout peddling Thin Mints without buying a box (or five), and mint chip ice cream is a refreshing summertime favorite. There’s just something about that flavor combo that gets me, so creating this mint chocolate chip smoothie was basically inevitable. 

The coolest thing: unlike the typical dairy treat, this blend gets its sweetness from a potassium-rich banana and dark chocolate chips. Sweet. Check. Chocolate-y. Check. Nutritious. Check. Still, if you’ve got a big sweet tooth, you can use sweetened almond milk without tacking on too much more added sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 1/3 cup Mama Love Chocolate Protein
  • 1 Banana, frozen
  • 1 cup Almond Milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp. Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ tsp. Peppermint Extract

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Add ice cubes for a thicker smoothie, or more almond milk if you prefer a thinner one. Serve cold.
