Not only is it festive for St. Patrick’s Day, but this shamrock smoothie tastes great any time of year. Enjoy it as a nutritious alternative to mint chocolate chip ice cream, breakfast on the go, or a refreshing post-workout snack. It is a great source of fiber, protein, calcium, vitamin C, potassium, and more.
1 small ripe banana (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup frozen cauliflower
5.3 oz container of vanilla Greek yogurt
1 cup spinach, packed
1/4 cup milk
1/4 of an avocado
1 Tbsp of Manitoba Milling Co. Smooth Whole Milled Flaxseed
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
dark chocolate chips to top
- Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to your blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour into a glass, top with chocolate chips and sprinkle with extra flaxseed.
(You could also blend in 1/8 cup dark chocolate chips but it will turn your smoothie a little brown.)
