Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Smoothie
If you like mint chocolate-chip ice cream you’ll love this smoothie! Just-picked mint provides a burst of freshness but you can also use a few drops of mint extract. Depending on the type of milk used, this smoothie is a great source of protein, providing about 25-30 grams of protein!
½ cup Greek yogurt
½ cup milk (cow, soy or nut milk)
2 Tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder
½ scoop protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
1-2 tsp honey, depending on sweetness preference
1 tsp cacoa nibs
3-4 sprigs fresh mints, coarsely chopped (or a few drops of mint extract)
Handful of ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix until fully combined. Note: the cacoa nibs will not completely dissolve but provide the chocolate chip-like texture!
