Spring has officially sprung! Nature is sprouting back to life around us and green is slowly tiptoeing back into view. Speaking of green(s), this smoothie is clearly full of them. But you'd never suspect it because it tastes like a creamy and refreshing mint chip shake.
Made without dairy, food dye, or anything artificial, you can think of this as a next-level, superfood-loaded version of the popular fast food shamrock shake.
So instead of ...
- High fructose corn syrup
- “Natural” flavors
- More sugar
- Synthetic dyes
- and yes more sugar
This recipe is full of ...
- Chlorophyll from leafy greens and green superfoods
- Vitamins and minerals
- Antioxidants and flavonoids from raw cacao
