Most days I drink a smoothie for either breakfast or a snack. The other day I was a little bored with my regular chocolate, peanut butter, banana smoothie and wanted to change things up. Experimenting with what I had on hand, this Healthy Chocolate Mint Smoothie was born! After taking one sip, I immediately thought this tasted like an Andes Mint! 

I always have mint in my fridge for this recipe and this recipe.

The other night we had chicken for supper. I cut mine up and used it to top a salad. However, my kids ate their chicken with straight ranch… and nothing else. After supper, I was feeling a little mom guilt over them not eating any vegetables. That’s when I pulled my out and asked, “Who wants a CHOCOLATE MINT smoothie for dessert!?!?” Of course, if you say dessert no little kid is going to turn it down. They fell right into my sneaky trap.

It’s been a hobby of mine to see how much spinach I can sneak into my family’s diet. This Healthy Chocolate Mint Smoothie is another sneaky success! And all of my kids got a serving of vegetables!

Being naturally green, this chocolate mint smoothie is perfect for St. Patrick’s day!
