One of the rules I (try to) live by is eat something "green" at least once a day. Whether that's a juice, a big ol' salad, spinach in my eggs, or a shot of wheat grass from the local Co-Op. Lately, I've been experimenting with the my green smoothies. I wanted to create one that didn't taste the way it looked, one that could tie me over until my next meal, and one that could pack a serious post-workout punch  That's where two of my favorite ingredients come into play; MINT & HEMP.


I never thought about combining the two until this smoothie came about. With enough vitamins and minerals to resemble a freshly pressed juice and a good amount of protein to rebuild those muscles, my Thin Mint Smoothie was born! It's a great midday pick-me-up or post-workout option for those looking to slim down or just wanting to get their greens in for the day in a delicious new way. And all of the ingredients can be found at a local grocery store! Now, go get your green on.
