The mint is going mad this year and I had forgotten about this old recipe. No banana mint this year but I am growing a chocolate one instead!
I love mint and am growing a few different varieties at the moment. This year I’m growing a banana mint which really does have a hint of minty bananas! So with the sun making a rare appearance this morning I felt the need for a light summer smoothie and of course it has to have mint. I’ve used banana mint but any mint will do.
Minty green banana smoothie (serves one)
- 100g fresh melon (I used cantaloupe)
- 1/2 banana or one small one
- 250ml coconut water
- large bunch of mint – I used about 15 leaves of banana mint – if using normal garden mint then probably 10 leaves as the banana mint has smaller leaves.
- 2 blocks of frozen spinach (or a handful of fresh)
Blend it all together.
