Tonight, I experienced one of my toughest-yet power yoga sessions. All of those warrior 2s, planks, and camels left me feeling like a champ... and starving. After unpacking from the day and settling in, I whipped up this little treat to serve as my dinner.
My favorite ice cream has always been mint-chip. But since I no longer partake of standard dairy-based desserts, I like to get creative. The nice thing about a raw food lifestyle is that you can enjoy something that tastes like dessert with zero guilt! This milkshake-style smoothie contains plenty of vitamin-rich fruit and veggies with a great balance of carbs and protein for an after-workout recovery meal. It tastes amazing, and won't weigh you down. I will definitely be making this more often!
Creamy Dreamy Mint Green Smoothie
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I used my homemade hazelnut milk for this one.)
1-2 cups of kale
3-4 frozen bananas
1/2 cup fresh mint
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop plant-based protein powder (I use Plant Head brand vanilla protein.)
2 tsp Dandy Blend tea (optional, but awesome.)
Pinch of salt
Sweetener of choice (I used a scoop of stevia for extra sweetness.)
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!
