Chocolate Mint Banana Shake

I feel like whenever I post a new smoothie recipe I always say it is my new favorite.  Well, once again this has been a smoothie I have been drinking a lot of lately!  It has 2 of my favorite ingredients in a smoothie, bananas and dates, but this smoothie also includes mint!


  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 dates
  • 1 tbsp carob powder
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract (a small handful of fresh mint will be better if available)
  • handful of spinach
  • Optional: 1 serving chocolate protein powder

Directions: Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

I’ve really been enjoying this smoothie in the morning at breakfast with the mint flavor.  Unfortunately, with the green spinach and the brown carob powder, it is not the prettiest so I didn’t take a picture.
