With school back in full swing, it’s important to get back into a daily routine or schedule to keep you living “On Target.”

Food is the number one way to bring the family together—we all eat so why not make mealtime, a time to re-connect, get back on track and nourish the mind and body?

Eating healthy should not be boring, time consuming, or too expensive. Think of healthy eating as something that’s fun, delicious, and key to keeping the mind and body healthy. The benefits of eating healthy and delicious meals are priceless.

“It’s not too expensive to eat healthy, it’s too expensive to get sick!”

Who doesn’t love Mint Chocolate ice cream? I think it was probably my favorite ice cream flavor growing up (and still is) followed by chocolate chip cookie dough. Use the recipe below to make a healthier version of this kid-friendly favorite.

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Serves 2

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 large can of coconut water
  • ¼ cup of macadamia nuts or Brazil Nuts
  • ½ cup of unsweetened shredded coconut (preferably toasted)
  • ¼ cup of hemp seeds
  • 4 dates
  • 1-2 cups of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1 handful of ice
  • ¼ cup of cacao nibs

Add all ingredients to a blender except cacao nibs. Blend until smooth. Add in cacao and blend to mix, about 5 seconds.
