Vegan Matcha Mint Chocolate Chip (Ice Cream) Smoothie a.k.a. OhMyChocolateyGoodness (P.S. Baskin Robbins, Who?)

VEGAN MATCHA MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP SMOOTHIE!!! 

OHMYGOD. 

Okay, who else loves a good ‘ol cone or cup (whatever floats your boat babes!) of mint chocolate chip ice cream? I MEAN, the question should probably be reworded as: WHO DOESN’T?!

This smoothie is basically a healthy version (that tastes JUST AS DECADENT. I SWEAR!!!). It tastes like ice cream but it’s made with bananas, spinach & vegan fermented & sprouted chocolate protein instead (I used Sun Warrior!). It’s topped with organic raw cacao nibs & I threw in some matcha for an extra dose of health, antioxidants & vitamin C for an immunity boost on this cold winter day!

What makes this smoothie great is not only its deliciousness & the fact that it’ll bring back so many CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, but also, the fact that it’s:

  • Made with just a few simple ingredients!
  • Ready in under 5 minutes!
  • Clean, healthy, raw, gluten-free & vegan!
  • Tastes like a milkshake, LEGIT.
  • The perfect hint of minty deliciousness!
  • AND I MEAN… CHOCOLATE. Need I say more?

I know, you probably think I’m insane drinking a smoothie when there’s a snowstorm outside, BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT WHAT’S IN YOUR SMOOTHIE. This one screams:

  • holidays!
  • winter!
  • warmth!
  • coziness!
  • fireplace!
  • mint!
  • chocolate!
  • Netflix!
  • blankets!
  • vanilla!
  • minty!
  • decadent & INDULGENT!

NOW, THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION: How on earth do I go about accomplishing something that tastes THIS GOOD, with such healthy ingredients? Let me explain!

My loves, YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk for thicker smoothie!);
  • 1/2 cup filtered water;
  • 1 scoop Sun Warrior vegan fermented & sprouted chocolate protein;
  • 1/4 banana (a frozen banana will make your smoothie thicker!);
  • 1/4 tsp. pure organic peppermint extract;
  • 1/4 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract;
  • 1/2 tbsp. organic matcha powder;
  • A heaping handful of fresh spinach;
  • A few ice cubes;
  • TOPPING: Raw organic cacao nibs.

And now, for that HOW-TO (It can’t get simpler, seriously):

  • Add all ingredients to your blender & blend until smooth & creamy!
    • For added thickness, add more banana or protein powder or swap almond milk for coconut milk!
