Mint Chip Smoothie

On December 20, 2012

This is one of my favorite comfort smoothies.  It’s full of fresh, fabulous greens and seeds that give me the nutritional boost I crave in the morning, yet tastes like total comfort!

The mint acts as a tummy tamer (for when you’re extra stressed or digestion isn’t flowing as it should), the spinach is full of vitamins and nutrients.  The flax and chia seeds add protein, fiber and healthy fats.  Then the date or banana, well, they make it oh so yummy.  Toss in some anti-oxidant packed cacao nibs for a bit of crunch and chocolatey goodness and you’ll be all set.

This smoothie is a great breakfast or dessert.  Experiement with the ratios to make it your own.

I’d love to know what you think!  Please share any of your swaps, additions or ideas down below…
