I have two go-to orders at an ice cream shop.
Number one, chocolate soft serve with rainbow sprinkles. And number two, mint chocolate chip ice cream. But I only will eat mint chip if it is green. Yes, I am aware it is some type of food dye or artificial coloring to get it green but it tastes better than the white mint chip you guys.
It’s weird that I like mint chip ice cream considering I’m not much of a minty person other than that. Peppermint brownies or candy canes around the holidays don’t do it for me, but I do constantly crave that mint ice cream with big chocolate chunks in it.
When J and I were in LA a couple months ago, I created my own mint chip smoothie bowl at a local smoothie shop in town and it was SO GOOD. I came home and have recreated so many times after finally buying fresh mint leaves from the grocery store (they freeze well BTW).
I stocked up on my Organic Girl Super Spinach, avocado and a few other goods and went to town on this smoothie bowl. It is pretty much one of my favorites (ok I still love the zucchini bread and avocado orgasm a lot too though) and it is one of the most satisfying smoothies ever.
You can top it with whatever you’d like and to make it even more “creamy” just add less liquid and more avocado or banana. You are going to LOVE.
