Chocolate Mint Greens Shake Recipe
Superfood greens harvested from your garden combined with chocolatey-cocoa goodness becomes a milkshake-match made in heaven. Pair the high antioxidants from raw cocoa powder and nutrient-dense spinach to give yourself a detoxifying energy boost for the day.
Handful of fresh spinach (harvested from your backyard or container garden)
Small container of plain Greek yogurt (about 1 cup)
Handful of fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 T raw cocoa powder
1 cup of your favorite milk (cow, goat, sheep, buffalo, alpaca, oat, almond, soy...)
Drizzle of maple syrup
Ice, as desired
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blitz until fully combined. There are endless opportunities to get creative here, even based on what you have in your garden, fridge or pantry.
-Add a frozen banana to make the consistency thicker.
-Freeze yogurt ahead of time for added texture.
-Use kale or other greens in place of spinach.
-Skip the maple for less sweetness, or try adding raw honey instead.
Sip & enjoy!
