Mint Chocolate Smoothie

Last weekend, I had the irresistible urge to make Lebanese food. I just wanted something so fresh and green. So I spent all Sunday making falafels, hummus, and tabbouleh. You know, the works! Come Monday morning, I have leftover fresh mint leaves. I don’t use mint to often so I wanted to try something really fun with it. I came across a recipe for a chocolate mint smoothie and it called my name. Here is a refreshing smoothie for a late morning or afternoon pick-me-up. 

¾ cup plain greek yoghurt
1 handful of mint leaves
½ cup fresh spinach
2 tbsp honey
¼ cup chocolate chips
1 cup almond milk
1 ½ cups ice

 Blend all ingredients together until smooth. I have hunch that cocoa might work better for a smoother chocolate flavor, but I wanted that pop of green. Hope you enjoy!
