Peppermint Green Smoothie

17 Nov

Hey Guys,

As you know by now I have a Green Smoothie or Juice every day but I want to start mixing it up a little to keep it interesting! I am Lov’n this little kick of peppermint flavour in this green smoothie variation.

-1/2 frozen banana
-1 cup baby spinach leaves
-1 cup coconut milk (or other nut milk)
-2 drops best-quality vanilla extract
-2-3 drops peppermint extract

(this was taken from my wellness guru – www.kriscarr.com)

If you’re trying to lose weight I’d swap the coconut milk with rice milk although it’s fine to have coconut milk occasionally.

I really can’t get enough of green smoothies. I was super excited today when I went to a friend’s house and he offered me a green smoothie! Most people offer coffee or soft drink which I don’t drink so I nearly fell off my chair when someone was offering me a smoothie! My kind of friend! And it also made me realise the importance of a good blender. The texture of his green smoothie was like velvet, it was so smooth. Much better than mine! I am dreaming of the day I buy a Vitamix Blender! (hint to Vitamix – feel free to send me a freebie and I will promote the shizzle out of it!)

Enjoy!
