  • 1/8 Teaspoon alcohol-free peppermint flavor (or less, to taste)
  • 1 scoop protein powder, such as Plnt vanilla protein powder
  • 1 Cup ice
  • 1 handful of cocoa nibs

Directions

To get a smooth green color, blend the almond milk and spinach until no visible spinach pieces remain.

Add ice (and additional almond milk, if desired). Blend until smooth.

Top with a handful of cocoa nibs

Ham Shopping Tip

Bone-in cuts tend to be slightly less expensive than their boneless counterparts, and have more flavor.
