  1. Add all six smoothie ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.

My favorite trick: I use a frozen banana instead of ice.
I used two Barlean's products for this smoothie: Chocolate Silk Greens
and Chocolate Mint Essential Woman Swirl.
Add all six smoothie ingredients to a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into a large glass.
This recipe makes one large 16oz smoothie- perfect for a filling breakfast on the go!
