Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

mint chip smoothie

The other day at the grocery store I walked by some mint and impulsively bought it because it smelled so good, but realized I had way too much of it once I got home. Instead of making my usual berry smoothie for lunch, I decided to experiment with mint and chocolate in a smoothie. Yes, the chocolate chips add on a few more calories, but this smoothie is overall pretty healthy! It tastes like a mint chocolate chip milk shake! Just add a banana, ice, yogurt, milk, cocoa, chocolate chips and mint to a blender and blend up this refreshing treat!

    What a great idea! Mint chocolate chip was my mom’s favorite ice cream while I was growing up, and I’ll bet she’d love your recipe. Any excuse to consume more chocolate is okay by me too! 🙂
