Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk substitute unsweetened or vanilla
  • 2 frozen bananas sliced
  • 4 drops mint essential oil OR 1/2 teaspoon mint extract OR 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract if using plain milk and/or protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon liquid sweetener of choice Stevia powder (1 packet) or a few drops of liquid Stevia
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder such as VegaOne
  • 1 cup ice*
  • Whipped cream or Vegan Whipped Cream optional, to garnish

Instructions

  • Place the ingredients into your blender jar in the order listed (if adding the protein boost, put them in before spinach or ice).
  • For Blendtec: Press the SMOOTHIE button.
  • For Vitamix: Select VARIABLE, speed #1. Turn on machine and quickly increase speed to #10/HIGH. Blend for 60 seconds or until smooth.
  • Pour into a chilled glass to prevent melting (McD's keeps it frosty with chemicals!), top with whipped cream if you like, and sprinkle some extra mint or sprinkles on top before digging in!
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes

Notes

* For a creamier texture and another 100 calories, sub the ice for another frozen banana.
