Description

The light and refreshing mint flavor really comes through in this smoothie, and a few crunchy flecks of cacao nibs will make it seem like a scoop of mint chip ice cream in a glass. Despite its easy sweetness, this is the perfect post-workout blend thanks to chlorella, an amazing superfood that’s rich in protein and is great for oxygenating the blood. It’s almost like putting sunshine right into your smoothie—but it may be a more grown-up flavor for some, so experiment with half the amount if serving to picky eaters. This smoothie is otherwise rich in clean proteins and minerals like magnesium and potassium. Absolutely fresh and delicious!
