This recipe tastes more like a milk shake than a smoothie, which means kids will love it. It contains protein-rich Greek yogurt, antioxidant-rich spinach, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat from avocado, which makes this a nutritionally sound treat. The chocolate chips are optional, but good for the soul.
¾ cup vanilla (or plain) low-fat Greek yogurt
½ cup tightly packed spinach
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk (can be regular or non-dairy milk)
5 ice cubes
½ – 1 Tbsp honey (to taste)
1 Tbsp chocolate chips
¼ tsp pure mint extract (can also use ¼ cup fresh mint)
- Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!
