HEALTHY CHOC MINT SMOOTHIE

Smoothies are one of my favourite ways to jam pack a whole lot of goodness into one, easy, on the go meal. Whilst my Bodhi Green Smoothie continually proves to be the most popular of all, my healthy choc mint smoothie is a very close runner up. How can you go wrong with chocolate and mint right? To ensure this smoothie ticks all the boxes, I’ve included extra veggies hidden into the mix to boost the nutritional bang for your buck. The great news is, you can’t taste them! Therefore, making it a perfect option for fussy kids – and fussy adults.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 1 pitted medjool date
  • 2 handfuls spinach 
  • 1/4 zucchini
  • 1/4 small avocado
  • 2 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp raw cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp 100% peanut butter
  • 2 drops of DoTerra peppermint essential oil
  • Small handful of ice
  • Optional Extras:
  • 1 TBSP hemp seeds – for extra protein and healthy fats or/
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseeds (for extra healthy fats, and hormone support) or/
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds (for extra fibre and digestive support)
  • 1 serve protein powder of your choice (to keep you feeling fuller for longer)

Method:

Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender and serve

Notes:

  • Can substitute peanut butter for any other nut butter including almond butter or cashew butter if preferred
  • My favourite nut butter’s that I recommend are any that are 100% nuts! I am loving Pic’s Peanut Butter and the delicious new range of Melrose Nut Butters
