Today was the day when I perfected my smoothie. I even took a selfie with it. That's when I knew I had to share. Recently I've been absolutely obsessed with mint everything. Mint RX bars, mint smoothies, mint chocolate chip halo top, etc. Maybe it's just a winter thing? Or maybe because it's so refreshing? Anyways, I've been trying to perfect this smoothie since having it numerous times at a local coffee shop- Sol Bean Cafe. I added in a few different ingredients, but this gives them a run for their money. Just saying.
So if you love smoothies, or mint, or healthy alternatives- here's one for you! It even has some veggies hidden in it and I promise you can't taste them either. I wish I was saying more on this post, but you'll have to wait until the end of the week for another one. You're welcome.
MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP SMOOTHIE
1 frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 handful of spinach (or kale....or half and half)
1/2 cup frozen cauliflower rice
1 tbsp melted coconut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp mint extract
1 tbsp cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
pinch of sea salt
*optional- 1 scoop of collagen
B L E N D & E N J O Y (if consistency is too thick to blend, add a splash of water in at a time!)
I will share the secrets to this smoothie-the frozen cauliflower rice and coconut butter. Frozen cauliflower rice tastes like nothing, but adds creaminess...and the coconut butter is so smooth and delicious. Complete power move on my end.
