Refreshing Mint Smoothie

Mint green smoothie in glass.

This smoothie is refreshing, healthy and surprisingly good. It offers a balance of healthy carbs, protein and fats to keep you satisfied and nourished and dazzles your tastes buds!

When the month of March rolled around as a kid, I absolutely loved having a Shamrock shake. Back then, I didn’t really realize how much sugar and artificial ingredients there were in this treat.

I wanted to recreate that amazing minty flavor and creaminess I loved, but make a drink with real foods and better nutritional balance.

This smoothie is so easy to make and so delicious! I’m addicted to it right now!!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Avocado
  • Spinach
  • Banana
  • Ice
  • Protein Powder
  • Water
  • Mint – leaves, extract or food-grade essential oil

Making the Recipe:

Add all of your ingredients to a high-speed blender or a Nutribullet.

For the mint in this smoothie, you have 3 different options:

  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh mint
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 2 drops food grade peppermint or spearmint essential oil

Blend until smooth and cream. It’s that simple!

Ingredients
