It's been FOREVER since I talked about my green smoothie milkshake fake – the green smoothie recipe that will make almost any green smoothie hater into a believer – it's sooo delicious! I rarely share recipes but this is one of like two I've ever done on Mint Arrow. because it's LIFE CHANGING.
No really, I drank this bad boy daily after giving birth to Anabelle and I swear it was the secret sauce that helped me lose the baby weight. I'm not even pulling your leg when I say it tastes JUST like a milkshake. For real.
If you want the original here's my original green smoothie milkshake fake recipe.
BUT, if you've been drinking it every day too for like ever and you're ready for a twist, here's my strawberry milkshake fake version!
Green Smoothie Strawberry Milkshake Fake:
1 cup almond milk
2/3 cup plain or vanilla greek yogurt
1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
2-3 heaping handfuls spinach
5-6 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 FROZEN ripe banana
Add ingredients to blender in that order and blend! If you don't have a frozen banana, just add a ripe one with a few cubes of ice … but I promise the key to making it taste like a milkshake is that frozen banana.
Also, you CAN do this with any blender but with greens it makes such a HUGE difference if you have a good blender like a blendtec blender! Tomorrow I'm going to talk about how to get the best deal on one (come back for details!) but TODAY I'm super excited to be giving one away!
Recently I started using the blendtec designer 725 series blender and I have to admit, it's pretty incredible. It just takes my smoothie game to a whole new level and the touch screen is pretty sweet too.
I've loved it SO much that I asked blendtec if I could give one away and they said yes! I'm giving away a blendtec designer 725 series blender + twister jar (valued at $769.94) to one lucky winner.

If drinkging this smoothie every morning will make me look like you, I will do it!! Currently I am using my food processor as a blender. #ghetto
Funny story about BlendTecs… I’m dating a guy who has a Blendtec and I’ve wanted one of my own for YEARS. I almost just splurged and got one right before we started dating but then decided to wait. My mom asked me why I didn’t buy it and I had to confess that *IF* I married this boy then we’d have two BlendTecs. Word got back to him and now he always gives me a hard time about just needing him for the blender… So I’ve decided I need my own afterall. And if by fate I ended up with two, what’s so bad about that?!
haha!! hilarious! i love it
WHAT A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY, THANK YOU.
Fingers crossed!!! Been wanting one for so long!

This is awesome!! I never won anything, fingers crossed for this one
Is the winner announced?
Has anyone tried the milkshake recipe with kale? Or would that be too powerful of a flavor and too fibrous?
hi yolnada! i’ve totally done it with kale and it’s delicious! it’s definitely a bit of a stronger taste but if you like kale you’ll love it. for a wimpy first timer (someone like my husband, ha), definitely stick to spinach 😉
