This smoothie is very nutrient dense but you would never know it! Packing in good fats, anti-aging collagen protein to help gut health and your hair, skin and nails, and sneaking in some veggies. I love using smoothies as a way to pack in all these healthy ingredients into one meal.
I worked on this recipe all summer last year, I needed to replicate what I was tasting in juice bars in order to create "mint chocolate chip" but healthy of course. After working at Rancho La Puerta and completing their summer juice and smoothie menu, I realized I couldn't get the flavor profile I wanted without the banana and date combo. Try this on a summer day, and boy does it take you back to the good ol minty chocolate ice cream, but WAY healthier of course.
