I love healthy smoothies but sometimes they can taste a little too ‘healthy.’ I want a smoothie that tastes good and is good for you. That’s the bar that I always set for smoothies. I won’t post one unless I can do both just like this Minty Green Smoothie
The mint definitely adds a nice kick of freshness. If you want more mint, you can always add a little mint extract. Also, a little bit of honey or agave nectar would be great here. It’s not necessary but it does add a little bit of sweetness if you don’t get enough from the banana.
Between the avocado and banana, this is a filling drink. It’s great for breakfast, as it will keep you satisfied until your next meal.
You’re definitely going to need a high-speed blender for this smoothie otherwise you’ll be chewing on bits of mint. If you like eating mint whole, then you’re fine but otherwise get a Vitamix or Ninja.
