This Mint Chip Smoothie Is A Favorite For A Reason

When I first wrote Superfood Smoothies, I went in with the objective to really open up the realm of flavor creativity and healthy diversity I was sure smoothies had the potential of. While I genuinely love all 100 recipes, it's always interesting to see which smoothies become the most popular over time. This mint-chip blend is one of them.

Tucked beneath a very convincing ice cream-like flavor, a wealth of beneficial spinach awaits you in this smoothie. It’s so good it almost makes a person wonder why spinach isn’t used in all minty treats. I love how the cacao nibs provide a bit of dark-chocolate crunch without being overpowering.
