So I love mint, always have, pretty sure I always will. But when I was thinking about making this mint chocolate chip smoothie, I had it in mind to make a super healthy version, that still looked (and tasted) decadent.
So in contrast to my vegan peppermint milkshake which is divine, but made with ice cream and stuff, this one looks and tastes like an ice cream shake but it’s made with bananas and spinach and fresh mint leaves instead!
It’s topped with vegan dark chocolate chunks, but you could also replace these with cacao nibs, if you like! So all in all – a ridiculously healthy smoothie that looks and tastes like a mint chocolate chip milkshake!
This is a simple 6-ingredient recipe that comes together in 10 minutes max.
You need to have frozen bananas on hand that have been frozen for at least 12 hours (and preferably longer). If you like smoothies, then always freeze your excess ripe bananas. Peel, quarter and place them into a freezer bag to freeze so you’re good to go for smoothies anytime.
I used coconut milk for a more decadent taste, but any non-dairy milk will do fine.
You will love this gorgeous green mint chocolate chip smoothie, it is:
- Raw and Gluten-Free
- Ready in 10 minutes
- Tastes like a milkshake
- Minty deliciousness
- Chocolate chip!
Consume immediately as this is fresh food that will oxidize, and all the vitamins and minerals are at their best when this is super fresh.
