Delicious and Healthy Minty and Vegetable Filled Smoothie

Healthy Recipe: Smooth and Minty Smoothie

When I was little, my mom used to make me child version grasshoppers. For those of you that don't know what that is, it's heaven in a glass. Imagine a mint chocolate chip ice cream blended to perfection and served up cold and frosty. Now imagine that same smoothie gives you fiber, iron, manganese, potassium, and all sorts of powerful vitamins. I've got one that can do just that. OK, OK . . . it won't taste like the grasshopper, but it's minty, refreshing and oh so good for your body. Another recipe from Green For Life, this green smoothie brings nutrition to the forefront without leaving the taste buds far behind.

I make a very similar smoothie! But I use bananas, spinach, a small can of "light" pears (so i use the pear juice instead of water for liquid), and mint.
