This vegan extra-thick mint chip superfood smoothie tastes like a healthy shamrock shake and packs a secret kick of green goodness. Does it get much better than that? Frozen bananas, a splash of hemp milk, hemp seeds, spirulina, and peppermint oil are whirled in a food processor to a thick and creamy consistency. A sprinkling of cocoa nibs or chocolate chips are tossed in and pulsed into the smoothie. Then, the deliciousness is scooped into a glass and topped with just a little bit more chocolate. The result is an energizing, detoxifying, minty, cooling, refreshing, dreamy glass of wonderful.

*I use the same peppermint oil that I put on my skin. Sounds crazy, but it's pure and delicious. If you don't have peppermint oil, you can substitute peppermint extract, but you'll want to add a bit more because it isn't as potent.
