#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!


  1. Do you have any more dessert recipes? Like good old fashioned cookie recipes? (Not necessarily vegan).

    1. I suppose because I struggle with a sweet tooth myself, I've hidden my Brownies, Creamy Chocolate Pudding, Strawberry Sorbet and more in my Misc. Case File. Coincidentally, I'm just about to add Chocolate Cupcakes to that same file. Today, in fact. Thanks so much for your comment and hope to see you back soon!
