Ever wondered how to use protein powder? This green smoothie recipe is PACKED with protein and nutrients, but it tastes like a mint chocolate chip milkshake! It’s quick, easy and SO healthy!
You guys. I thought that I was living in Washington until I up and made this smoothie.
And then I realized that I was living in “The Land of LIES.”
Up until my taste buds met the (really cute and stripey!!) straw, they were completely and TOTALLY anti green smoothies.
I mean, a kale salad recipe? GIMME DAT. But, kale all blender-ized up and sipped through a straw.
Umm. No thanks. I like to chew my vegetal friends please.
BUT, when I had the opportunity to make a little recipe magic with my new Blendtec Designer 725, I knew that I wanted to see how it would fare in the land of smoothie making.
Remember when Mr.FFF made his recipe debut with the pear smoothie and I told you that I am just not a smoothie sipper? I mean, unless it’s a chocolate avocado smoothie from Texanerin, that is.
WELL. The reason is because everysingletime I have ever made ANY SMOOTHIE.…it basically just turns out as icey water. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pineapple smoothie, an avocado smoothie bowl or a banana vanilla orange smoothie. THEY’RE ALL ICY.
No thank you, the sequel.
So, I wanted to see if the Blendtec would finally give me that thick, SUPA creamy texture that I was craving.
Literally. I crack myself up.
Well, my peepsie-doodles, when I turned it on and the power BLEW MY UTENSILS off the counter (LIKE WHOA) I knew I was in for a treat.
There was definitely no sign of the icey-icky-watery smoothies of days past. The Blendtec made this green smoothie recipe soooo CR to the EAMY.
Whatever that means.
Now, I can’t lie to you. I wasn’t even planning on adding kale because I was still a little bit 0_o about the whole leafy greens in my beverages shenanigans.
BUT, what is a mint chocolate chip smoothie if it isn’t GREEN?
ONE BIG LIE. That’s what.
Apparently I have lies on the brain today. Let’s not start getting all deep and inquisitive and wondering why that may be capeesh?
I had some leftover K-izzle (the super trendy name for kale. That I just invented) in the fridge so I decided to just DO IT. AANNND in it went.
I was nervous.
I pressed the power button. BUZZ SHRED BUZZ went the kale.
Green went the smoothie.
“SUCCESS” went the Taylor. BUT, how would it taste?
Oh, ya know, like a MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP MILKSHAKE.
Smoothie sippin’: COMMENCE.
