St. Patty's Smoothie

Yum! And heathy are 2 words to describe this smoothie.  Since I was going to be making the boys homemade "Shamrock" shakes, I made myself one of these instead. 

This is another easy recipe to put together.  This recipe makes four servings.  I put the other three servings in the freezer so I can enjoy them later.  (They are already portioned out so all I have to do is pull it out of the freezer, thaw it out, pour it into a cup, and then enjoy.)

St. Patty's Smoothie

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1.5 c. of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  • 2 bananas

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips


  1. Place all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips in the blender.

  2. Blend until smoothie.

  3. Add the chocolate chips.

  4. Blend until the chips have been combined.

  5. Pour a fourth of it in a cup.  Divide the rest into 3 quart sized bags that have been labeled.  Place those 3 bags in the freezer for later.

  6. Enjoy the smoothie in the cup!
