Dairy-Free, can be Nut-Free

Hello happiness! This Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie from Up Beet and Kaling It is like a big hug for my mint-loving soul. Mint, chocolate and avocado – three of my favorites team up for this breakfast powerhouse that will leave you satisfied until lunchtime. The recipe can be found @upbeetandkalingit on Instagram. There was a time when a recipe that called for a handful of spinach, fresh mint leaves, cacao nibs, almond butter and almond milk would have driven me insane. “How much exactly of each,” I would have wondered. But now that I’ve become much more smoothie-savvy, I know that starting with a base of ½ cup to ¾ cup of almond milk, 1-2 tablespoons of almond butter, a BIG handful of spinach and several stems of mint would be a good place to start. Just keep tasting it to see if more of anything needs to be added. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with any amounts of this combination!
