Let’s just take 5 minutes, and make a much better for you option that’s also much less expensive and won’t require you to drive anywhere.
I’ve got 4 kids, half of them are teenagers, but all of them eat like teenagers. I’m all about saving money.
But I also don’t want to sacrifice taste. So I was thrilled when I tested this recipe and everyone loved it! No green dye here folks, it’s naturally green!
How is it green without food coloring?
Let me just assure you, it’s not spinach or kale. This seems to be the “go-to” for making green smoothies. But not here.
It’s fresh mint! So it’s still sweet and very refreshing. If you didn’t know, mint has some great benefits.
- It can help with tummy troubles, nausea, headaches
- It’s anti-inflammatory
- It’s immune-boosting
So let’s break out the Mojito’s!
What does it taste like?
The two main flavors are vanilla and mint. Mint as in fresh mint, spearmint, not peppermint.
