If you're craving a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone or a box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies, blend up this smoothie recipe from Julianne Hough instead. Just like these classic treats, her smoothie offers the classic blend of mint and chocolate you're craving but can easily stand in for a healthy breakfast.

Greek yogurt provides the protein-rich base, and a full cup of vitamin-A-rich spinach that you won't even be able to taste is tossed into the mix. After taking a sip, you're sure to agree with Hough in saying, "I think I'm in heaven."
