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 I’ve been sharing lots of recipes on my Facebook page lately, but it’s nice to actually get something up on my blog again!
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
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!
