I mean, I can hardly wait for breakfast ANYWAY, because I just like food that much. But this is a seriously yummy smoothie.
It comes out all kinds of thick and creamy.
In fact, it's just like Friendly's ice cream except not as cold and it doesn't have any milk. Or ice. Or cream. Or bright food color. Or whey protein concentrate. Or mono and diglycerides for that matter.
But aside from that, it's EXACTLY like Friendly's ice cream!
If you haven't made friends with avocados yet, you might want to head back to this vegan / pale Chocolate Mousse Smoothie recipe first. It's an amazingly delicious way to convince yourself that fruits and vegetables aren't the enemy after all, no matter how healthy they are.
And try this recipe for my Naturally Sweet Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie if, like me, you regularly mistake dates for giant cockroaches. It turns out that if you grind the daylights out of them in a blender, they actually sweeten things up quite nicely!
But there's a THIRD ingredient lurking in this recipe, and you might notice it in the little striped bowl pictured above. It's spinach. Yes, spinach is part of the reason this recipe, unlike Friendly's ice cream, needs no food color at all.
And guess what? You can't even taste the stuff!! Seriously, you can throw in way more than what's pictured and still have no idea it's in there. Just ask my boy. He never knew until I told him what he was eating.
Of course, you have to get that delicious peppermint flavor somewhere. I get mine from the Jeannette Kauffman's at Young Living, because Jeannette is a photography buddy of mine. Young Living brand is completely edible (this is something you want to research if you use a different brand - eating stuff that is not food can be unsafe!).
You seriously only need two drops of this stuff in the smoothie. And you can even start with just one drop and take a taste. It's that potent. Three or four drops will leave you trying to remember whether or not you actually like peppermint.
This is NOT a sponsored post. Believe me, all of Blogsilvania will know about it if and when I do a sponsored post. But this is not it. This is just a recipe and that's all. Happy weekend everyone!
