So lately I’ve been starting to miss blogging, and I just had a delicious smoothie for breakfast, so I thought I’d share it on here
Mint chocolate has always been one of my favourite sweet food combos (right up there with chocolate peanut butter. omg!). I used to make mint chocolate smoothies using peppermint extract, and it was good, but then I started using fresh mint instead and all I can say is Game. Changer. It is just delicious.
Here’s what you need to make one giant mason jar full of smoothie.
Note: For those of you who are new to my smoothie recipes, you may think it’s crazy that I’m using 5 bananas in my smoothie. Basically, a year or so ago, I learned about high carb diets through Instagrammers like Loni Jane and Ellen Fisher and books like The 80/10/10 Diet. I don’t follow a High Carb Low Fat diet (HCLF), because I don’t follow any kind of diet, but I still do enjoy eating lots of carby foods. So yeah if you want to learn more you can check out those links. I by no means am saying I think High Carb is for everyone, but I do personally enjoy eating a plant based high carb diet most of the time.
FRESH MINT CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE
5 ripe bananas (fresh or frozen)
1 handful of fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons of cacao nibs
1 tbsp Philosophie Cacao Magic (optional)
Almond milk/water (I like a 50/50 mix of both. Use as much liquid as you want depending on how thick you want your smoothie).
Optional: hemp seeds or chia seeds.
Blend it up and enjoy!
If you want to make this a smoothie bowl instead of a smoothie, use half the amount of liquid and serve in my fave bowl, Coconut Bowls.
