Mint Green Smoothie

It’s summer and it’s hot out. This fresh, creamy smoothie is the perfect drink to take out with you on a walk or to drink when you get inside to cool down.

I’m a bit obsessed with adding mint to food and drinks when I can. The fresh taste is so satisfying and it helps to soothe a sensitive tummy. I like adding a scoop of collagen powder to this smoothie for a kick of protein. The healthy fats from the avocado help to keep me full for longer than a smoothie with just fruit would. The fresh fruits and leafy greens provide a large dose of vitamin C and a variety of minerals to nourish your body.

Let me know what you think of it!
