No Meat Zone Recipes: Shamrock Spinach Smoothie


This smoothie is insanely delicious, the colour is beautiful and all natural, the flavours are bold and refreshing. I really enjoy this! This is great because... well, I've never ever enjoyed chocolate milk as I've said numerous times I'm not a fan, but mint chocolate chip ice cream has always been a favourite of mine, and this sort of reminds me of it. Instead of peppermint extract you can use a few mint leaves (which I've been doing this week), you can use cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, regular soy milk or any soy milk, it's really versatile and you'll get similar fantastic tastes'.
