This is a fun green smoothie to make. I shared a version of this last year on my blog, but it is worth sharing again!  It’s minty and sweet… and of course clean because it’s loaded with good stuff. 

Grow or buy some fresh mint and enjoy! 

Green Shamrock Smoothie 
(Makes 1-2 servings)
1 large banana, frozen and chopped
1 big handful fresh spinach
1 cup canned organic coconut milk  (I prefer organic “lite” coconut milk)
½ tsp pure vanilla extract 
5-7 fresh mint leaves, chopped 
1 tablespoon chia seeds, optional 
Directions: 
- Blend bananas, spinach and coconut milk until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend until frothy.  You can also add in cold water or ice cubes to make it a milkshake consistency. 
- Pour into glasses and enjoy. If you let it set in the refrigerator, the chia seeds will thicken the drink and you will have to shake it up or re-blend it before you drink it.
