Mint Chip Smoothie


2013/03/05 by nikkiledford

I’ve really been into these smoothies lately. Usually I shy away from them because I generally don’t like to drink my food. I love food. I love eating. So drinking usually leaves me feeling a bit unsatisfied. But I can to this realization that drinking a smoothie usually means that I get to have breakfast twice… and I LOOOVE breakfast. So I’ll have my smoothie in the morning (before yoga) and then for lunch I will usually make my “breakfast” eggs, bacon, etc… It’s pretty awesome. I feel like I’ve tricked the universe.

If you think that’s sneaky, just wait till you make this smoothie. Not only does it suffice for a breakfast food, but it’s also like eating dessert. WHAAAAT?! Seriously. Dessert and Breakfast in one. So sneaky.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
