Meatless Monday Recipe: Peppermint Patty Green Monster Smoothie

Posted on March 17, 2014 by rebeccascritchfield

Happy Meatless Monday and happy St. Patrick’s Day!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I wanted to share one of my favorite, festive, and deceptively healthy green smoothie recipes: Peppermint Patty Green Monster Smoothie. This kid-friendly smoothie is packed to the brim with deliciously minty and chocolatey flavor, with the added bonus of masking the spinach (you’re family will never know what hit them!). This smoothie recipe is perfect for breakfast or dessert and can be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled to accommodate the little leprechauns in your life.
