Chocolate Mint Vegetable Popsicles

This fills one set of 6 Tovolo ice pop molds. Last summer, these were the major source of vegetables in my diet

Magic Mint Chocolate Smoothie

1 cup milk of choice
1 cup mild leaves, such as spinach
1 cup chopped vegetables
1 frozen banana
6-10 drops stevia
10-15 drops peppermint extract (use less if using peppermint oil)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 Tbs cocoa powder
3/4 cup ice cubes

Blend on high until smooth.

You can use almost any mild vegetable:
beet greens
broccoli stalks
cauliflower (stalks and head)
mild mushrooms (these add a strong flavor, try only a tiny bit at a time)
