Skinny Mint Green Smoothie


Author Notes: When the Girl Scout cookie cravings just won't let up, reach for this plant-powered smoothie! The combination of cacao powder and fresh mint leaves will give you that chocolatey-mint flavor you've been craving, but instead of packing in the fat and calories, you'll be packing in nutrients from spinach, and avocados! It's really a win-win. Lindsey Johnson helped create the amazing recipe and it has been a winner at Simple Green Smoothies for years. Simple Green Smoothies
