Chocolate Mint Smoothie
Are you looking for a healthy raw recipe that you can use to pick you up and give you energy? This delicious smoothie does just that with energizing cacao, protein, and sweet bananas!
2 cups of your favorite nut mylk
3 small frozen bananas
1-2 tablespoons of raw cacoa or cocoa powder
2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Blend all ingredients including the oil in your Vitamix® on the low variable setting. Use your tamper to mash the frozen bananas. Add more mylk or a frozen banana to increase or decrease its thickness. Once you have your desired thickness it’s time to savor the flavors.
TIP: I have also used raw cocoa powder and found the flavor very pleasing. Be careful with the peppermint oil; it can be very overpowering.
