Mint Green Super Smoothie



Mint Green Super Smoothie

A green smoothie recipe that’s fresh, creamy, and minty? Yes, please!
This Mint Green Super Smoothie is to die for. Its like having a yummy milkshake for breakfast but it’s a green smoothie packed with healthy ingredients.
Its plant-based, thick and of course has a good helping of protein. Coconut milk and bananas form a creamy base, spinach and avocado gives this smoothie a vibrant green color and peppermint extract and vanilla give it an ice cream flavor.
It sure is a delicious way to get in some greens and fibrous fruit and it can be adapted a variety of ways to suit your taste buds and dietary preferences. And no, you can’t taste the spinach!
As well as breakfast, I love to have one of these as an afternoon treat or a dessert at night. I keep bananas chopped and frozen so I can whip one of these bad boys up whenever the craving hits.
This tangy, minty smoothie may have more adult appeal than kid appeal, but it’s certainly one of my favorites. I particularly like it made with almond milk.
This smoothie packs in a couple of servings each of fruit and greens – a powerful way to start the day yet it still tastes like a special treat.
It has over 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber– meaning it will keep you full for hours! If you keep bananas, spinach and even avocados in the freezer, you will always have what you need to whip this up in minutes.

Servings 1


  • 1 medium banana, sliced, frozen
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, full fat, canned
  • 1 cup firmly packed, spinach, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (if you feel it needs to be sweeter)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon peppermint extract (can vary in intensity- so start small!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Toppings

  • Whipped coconut cream – store bought or recipe link below in notes
  • Chopped chocolate bar or chocolate chips
  • Chopped nuts or fresh fruit
  • Drizzle of nut butter


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and process until thick and creamy. Add additional coconut milk if you need to thin it out. I use my tamper stick to press the frozen ingredients into the blade and use as little liquid as possible – so it comes out with an ice cream consistency!
    Top with a dollop of whipped coconut cream, sprinkle with chocolate chips, and enjoy while it’s thick.
