With this smoothie, it was love at first sip. The yogurt, avocado, and banana give it the lush creaminess you’d expect from your favorite ice cream stand. And the collagen and peppermint extract perfectly emulate that minty, chocolatey flavor you thought you could only find in a Ben & Jerry’s tub.
I treat it like a pre-workout drink and sip it around 4 p.m. to carry me through the end of the workday and into my evening workout. The healthy fats from the hemp seeds, protein from the collagen, fiber from the banana and avocado, and nutrients from the spinach make me feel full, fueled, and ready to go.
