Author Notes

This smoothie tastes just like mint chip ice cream, it's kind of insane. Superfoods like spinach and avocado give you all the good feels, while the matcha provides a healthy boost of energy. Using almond milk ice cubes instead of regular ice thickens the smoothie without diluting the flavor. Feel free to add more spinach and matcha if you'd like – we're adding less here to keep the color light and mint-y. —Look Cook

Hot tip: the next time you have some avocado leftover after sushi/guac-making/avo-toast assembly, freeze it! I added some frozen avocado in place of the ice cubes and it was delicious.
