Peppermint Patty Green Smoothie

SERVES 2

3/4 cup almond milk

1 cup spinach (about one handful)

1 frozen banana

2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, stems removed, or 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 heaping tablespoon chocolate chips

Place all the ingredients, except for chocolate chips, into your blender. Start on low speed and increase to high. Blend until smooth, about one minute. Add the chocolate chips and blend for a few seconds. Blend just long enough to break them down into smaller pieces. Enjoy!
