This is delicious and refreshing. If you're new to green monster smoothies, it's an experience, but if you're familiar with them you'll love it! Reminds you of a healthy version of a Girl Scout cookie.

Yummy! I omitted the mint extract and added more mint - it was still minty.

Amazing!!! I used almond milk instead of coconut as it's all I had, and mini chocolate chips instead of cacao, still delicious. After my first try I've been adding a lot more spinach, maybe three fistfuls. I would also add a caveat about the amount of mint extract--I used Adam's brand, which is apparently more concentrated than others, I ended up having to double the recipe to cut the extreme mint (no hardship there, just a headsup to start small and add more extract if needed)
