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!

Ohhh, I love mint chocolate chip! Your smoothie sounds so wonderful and refreshing!
Mmm, tasty and refreshing all in one 😀
Good stuff! Looks like a most excellent smoothie. Love the mint garnish.
I think the fresh mint in this would be wonderful. It certainly is a very pretty looking smoothie xx
Interesting smoothie, the mint is just an absolutely fantastic addition.
This looks great! I have so much mint growing in our garden that I need to start adding it to smoothies.
Yay! I love making smoothies in my Magic Bullet!
This looks and sounds so good. I think I want to try this next week!
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! 🙂
This was really good!! Made it for some friends and we loved it 🙂
