#171 The Case of Chocolate Mint Smoothie

Mint is a cheerful, invigorating flavour, isn't it?
Chocolate, on the other hand, is an acquired taste. [Straight face.]
I get plenty of fresh mint sprigs from my friend Kathleen. I have to assume that it's the zucchini of fresh herbs because she's always saying, "Here, have some mint!"
Chocolate Mint Smoothie
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon fresh, slightly-compressed-between-your-fingers mint leaves
1/2 cup light coconut milk
2 tablespoons Sunwarrior raw vegan protein powder
1 tablespoon cacao
1 tablespoon raw agave syrup
8 ice cubes

Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender, in the order given, and blend.

Serves 1.


PS This also works with 1/2 tablespoon dried mint in the place of fresh mint!
