The fresh mint gives it just enough mint taste without being overpowering. The perfect mid day pick-me up or add your favourite protein powder for a refreshing after workout shake!
About a month ago I planted some mint for my kitchen window and it since has gone wild and it slowly taking over the window for itself. I knew mint had a tendency to do this and for some reason I decided to do it anyways, lol. Not that I’m complaining about having fresh mint in my life, it’s great to use in a number of dishes, in salads and smoothies like these Chocolate Mint Smoothies.
So refreshing, I find using fresh mint gives it a lovely mint taste without being overpowering which I sometimes find happens when you use extracts. Combined with the cocoa powder, milk and vanilla yogurt, it’s so creamy and frothy, almost like a milk shake!
I added a little bit of ice to mine because I like my smoothies thick but you may find you don’t need it.
Now I’m off to make mint chocolate everything until I harvest my next batch of mint!
