  1. Place all ingredients except the chocolate chips into a blender and mix until well blended. 

  2. You can add more milk if it’s too thick. 

  3. Add chocolate chips and pulse to chop them up, but don’t overblend because you will lose the green color. 

  4. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips and a dollop or whipped topping if desired.
