Today’s Raw Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie recipe pays homage to two of my all-time favorite smoothies: Cafe Gratitude‘s “I Am Cool” milkshake, a minty, cacao nib-filled dessert treat, and HipCityVeg‘s “Groothie,” a Philly favorite with spinach as the key green ingredient. I am really happy with the way this smoothie turned out, bursting with fresh mint from the Clark Park Farmers’ Market and packed with superfood flavor. I hope you enjoy my twist on two classics!
1.5 frozen bananas
1 cup fresh spinach
3-4 fresh mint leaves (I used peppermint leaves)
6-7 drops stevia (optional)
3/4-1 cup frozen pineapple
1 Tbs cacao powder
1 tsp maca
2 tsp chia seeds
3/4 cup ice
Blend all ingredients. Enjoy topped with raw chocolate shavings, fresh berries, buckwheat groats, granola, goji berries, etc.

Today’s Our Hen House episode features lots of amazing interviews (Jasmin’s family! Vedge owners and more!), and I was lucky enough to be one of them!
I love Jasmin and Mariann and it was fantastic to meet up with them for groothies, the green smoothie at HipCityVeg alongside Courtney.
