MINT MOJITO SMOOTHIE

This is one of the first smoothies I have made without any fruit, and I was so pleasantly surprised! I looked at some recipes online and bought some fresh spearmint at the Farmer’s Market. This smoothie is a winner in my book. The protein powder helps to make it nice and filling. I had it as a little afternoon pick-me-up between lunch and dinner.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I prefer Aloha)
  • 3-5 Fresh mint or spearmint leaves (depends on preference)
  • Juice from ½ a lime (or approx. 1 tbs)
  • Lime zest*
  • 1 handful spinach or kale
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 c water (or coconut water if you have it)
  • Ice (I like my smoothies super cold so I used a lot)

BLEND, SIP, ENJOY!

*(Totally unnecessary but it does enhance the flavor and i hate to see a good lime skin go to waste!)
