Mint Cacao Chip Smoothie

Leave a comment

Not a new smoothie on the block but definitely one that pleases the whole fam and one that I keep making each week. You know me, there’s lot of frozen riced cauliflower in here so it’s veggie and antioxidant packed. Winning!

Mint Cacao Chip Smoothie (Makes a smoothie serving size enough for Poppy and I to share):

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 cup frozen rice cauliflower
  • 1-2 handful of spinach
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup plain kefir
  • Small handful fresh mint or 1/2-1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1-2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • Handful of ice
  • Optional 1-2 dates but the protein powder I used makes it sweet enough for me

Blend it all together and enjoy! Poppy learned a new fun trick last week. She keeps liquid in her mouth for a really long time until she decides she’s done then squirts it out wherever she is… let’s just say I don’t let her walk around with any type of liquid in a cup, even her water bottle, anymore unless I want to step in a pile of whatever it is in 20 minutes. Cheers!
