Not only is today’s Peppermint Chip dessert quick and easy to whip up, it’s full of nutrient-dense ingredients that are great for our health.
Peppermint has long been shown to provide all kinds of physical benefits, like providing relief for headaches, indigestion, and even anxiety. It also calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats.
Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. #powerhouse
Bananas are a great source of healthy fiber, plus they’re high in potassium and magnesium, in addition to Vitamins B6 and C.

…I don’t like bananas? Try subbing mango – you’ll get a similar consistency with the same fiber benefits.
…I don’t like mint? That’s ok, you can leave it out- or you might want to try Chocolate or Strawberry instead.
…I can’t have almond milk? Any kind will do; use your favorite, or just use water for a thinner consistency.
…I don’t have spinach available? Try another dark leafy green, like romaine, baby kale, or swiss chard.
