My hubby and I were faced with a very serious dilemma. Do we go out for dinner because we are feeling too lazy to cook or do we make something simple? Before we answered that question we took a moment to express gratitude for the fact that we are able to ask it because we are so abundant and have so many food choices. We are so lucky!
Then I remembered I had bought all the ingredients to make a sweet potato crust quiche so we decided to work together and create this dinner masterpiece. We adapted the recipe from Cooking Light and it was incredibly easy and epically delicious.
You asked for it! Here’s how to make one of my favorite smoothies. It’s a mint chocolate chip one and it’s awesome…especially when you make it while rocking out to a Reba jam by Phish.
This smoothie is not only healthy, but it seriously tastes like mint chocolate chip ice-cream. It’s crazy!!!!
Here’s what’s in it:
1 handful greens (whatever you like…spinach, kale, chard)
1/4 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)
1 capful organic peppermint extract
Milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
5 figs or dates
Optional superfoods (I used chia seeds, spiralina and nori seaweed powder)
Place everything in the blender and blend while rocking out. If using a vitamix start at 1 and move to 10 and then set the gear shift to high and it will go out of control. Then pour it into a glass and enjoy it because it’s soooooo good!
Feel free to share this video with your friends to inspire more green in their kitchens. Comment below about how excited you are to try this smoothie. <3
