It’s Halloween and I never bought my pumpkin. Lame. I really wanted to post something cool with a pumpkin.
Instead, you’re getting my ghoulish GREEN MONSTER. You’re scared, aren’t you?
Don’t be, it’s really a mint chocolate chip milkshake, but shhhh….
ps. . . it’s delish!
Maybe you can convince your kids to trade you candy for this GREEN MONSTER [all caps = my monster voice]
Just don’t tell them there’s spinach in it. They’ll never know. You probably wouldn’t either.
I’ll take this gluten-free & dairy-free treat any day.
Mint Cocoa Monster Milkshake
- 1 large frozen bananas
- 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips [or 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder]
- 1/4 teaspoon of pure peppermint extract
- 1 cup almond milk [more or less depending on how thick you want it]
- 1/4 cup frozen spinach [I add more to get more greens]
Blend everything together in your blender.
Optional: garnish with chocolate flakes
