Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

In celebration of all things green today, I made this green grasshopper smoothie. Don’t worry, it doesn’t contain any real grasshoppers! It is inspired by grasshopper desserts, which usually contain mint and chocolate. This healthy smoothie is loaded with spinach, banana, almond milk, mint extract, and cacao nibs. It is really refreshing when cold, so I like to freeze my bananas beforehand and use a handful of frozen spinach straight from the freezer. Fresh mint leaves add a nice touch of decoration, and go perfectly when blended in this grasshopper smoothie for an extra minty taste.
