This is a really yummy summer treat (or anytime of the year for that matter)! You won’t believe how healthy this smoothie is when you taste it. It tastes like a mojito, but it’s filled with sneaky healthy ingredients. It’s actually perfect for getting veggies into kiddos! For this recipe I like to pick fresh herbs from my garden, but it can be easily made without fresh leaves so I will give those options as well.
1/3 c. frozen greens (kale, spinach, chard…)
1 frozen banana
1/3 c. frozen green peas
1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
~7 mint leaves, or a couple drops mint extract
~3 stevia leaves, or about 8 drops of stevia liquid
1 1/3 c. non-dairy milk
1 Tbsp. ground chia seeds, optional
1/2 tsp. rum extract, optional
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend well. Enjoy!
* I promise it won’t taste like peas. 😊 Mint is really good at masking flavors. You will enjoy a serving of greens and peas which help you stay full longer, all while enjoying a refreshing treat!
