Vanilla Mint Smoothie Recipe

On Christmas morning, after opening our stocking presents from Santa and awaiting my grandmother’s arrival to open the presents under the tree, I whipped out my parent’s blender and made a delicious smoothie. This Vanilla Mint Smoothie came out not too sweet and very refreshing – the perfect snack/light breakfast before diving back in for more present opening.

I think I need to put mint in smoothies more often. It was so good! I threw some spinach in there, too, for added nutrient power (that you can’t taste!) and a fun green color to go with the mint theme. For some protein, I threw in a container of vanilla Greek yogurt. If you’re vegan or avoiding dairy, you could do a hemp or brown rice protein powder instead.

Unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almondmilk served as the base of the smoothie. If you like your smoothies sweeter, try using the sweetened vanilla almondmilk, or use the unsweetened and add half of a large (or one whole small) very ripe banana.

    Yum! I grow mint in a flower pot on my patio in the spring and summer, and I love to throw a few springs into my smoothies, especially on a hot day! Might have to pick some up at the grocery store and try it in the winter, too. :)

    So refreshing! I think I might have to add a little stevia though as I have quite the sweet tooth ;) Thank you for inspiring others to live healthy lives!
