mint chocolate monster

My favorite "green monster" smoothie of the moment is what I will call a mint chocolate monster green goodness.

I am definitely hooked on this version for now. The cacao nibs and mint leaves in this smoothie add to health benefits that are already packed in to the base!


for 2 servings:

3-4 large handfulls organic baby spinach leaves

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1 frozen, large banana (frozen in chunks)

1/4 cup almonds

1- 1 1/2 dates that have been soaked in cold water in the fridge overnight

6-8 medium-sized fresh mint leaves (depending on minty preference)

1 1/2 tablespoons cacao nibs (I like Navitas Naturals)

4-5 ice cubes

Put everything in your high-speed blender (VitaMix) and process to the consistency that you prefer, until there are no large/visible pieces of spinach, cacao nibs, or almonds.

I sprinkled a few extra cacao nibs on top fo garnish, as well.

Also, don't forget about the giveaway I posted on Tuesday for a silk braided friendship bracelet - it ends on Monday! If that interests you at all, go take a look and enter!
