Chocolate Chip Mint Smoothie
1-2 frozen bananas
a few stevia leaves
a couple of handfuls of lettuce (or spinach)
several mint leaves (I have a chocolate mint plant and I use about 10 leaves)
1-2 cups milk or milk substitute
1 handful dark chocolate chips
As is probably obvious from the recipe I don’t tend to measure things for smoothies. I just throw everything into the blender and turn it on and add more milk if it won’t blend.
