Mint Chocolate Chip Green Smoothie

Happy Monday, everyone!

I got the day off work today for MLK day, and it has been such a wonderful and relaxing day! I went for a run, I went grocery shopping, I took a bunch of pictures of Morton, I read a bunch of blogs... and I made a yummy, super refreshing smoothie!

You really can't taste the spinach at all. I mostly taste the banana, cucumber, and the protein powder. If you're not a huge fan of cucumber (or if you don't have a juicer) you can omit the cucumber juice and just sub in a little bit of water.
