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.

This recipe was originally created for Mama Love Chocolate Protein, which is no longer in production. Looking for a great alternative? For a similar taste and consistency, try using a high-quality, plant-based protein powder made from yellow peas, like Naked Pea Chocolate Pea Protein Powder


  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 1 serving Plant-based Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 Banana, frozen
  • 1 cup Almond Milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp. Dark Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ tsp. Peppermint Extract


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.
