So...Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie

Tonight for dessert we had mint chocolate chip ice cream.
With spinach and avocado.
And my kids loved it.

Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie
1 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk (or almond milk, or coconut milk)
1 generous handful of spinach (about 1 cup)
1 generous handful of arugula (about 1 cup)
*I didn't have arugula tonight, so I substituted with more spinach*
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup greek yogurt (optional)
2 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 T agave
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Blend, and enjoy!
The Blendtec has an "ice cream" setting - I use that.
It's so thick and creamy the kids eat it with a spoon.

The kids love this and ask for it often.
Even Son#1 will sit still long enough to drink this - and that's saying something!
I absolutely love that they're getting they're leafy greens in their dessert :)
