New smoothie recipe alert!
This is a summer time favorite of mine because my boss grows mint and brings it to me so I can make this smoothie!
There are two great things about this smoothie:
1. It looks like mint chip ice cream. So even though it’s green from kale your brain still associates it with mint ice cream, which is green as well.
2. It really kind of tastes like mint chip ice cream…or maybe its been a while since I actually had real ice cream…
2-3 handfuls/branches of kale, leaves only
3 dates, pitted
1 frozen banana
1 cup almond milk or other kind of milk
Mint leaves to taste (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon cacao nibs
In a blender, blend all ingredients except the cacao nibs. Once the drink is puréed, add the nibs and pulse just enough to stir the nibs around.
