TUESDAY TIP – HEALTHY MINT CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE
Healthy Mint Chocolate Smoothie Recipe
Chocolate and mint make one of the greatest food marriages ever. There’s something about the combination of the deep, earthy-sweet flavour of chocolate and the cool, light, brightness of mint that makes my taste buds celebrate.
If you’ve never tried this pairing in a smoothie, now is the perfect time to start. I add a handful of fresh spinach for iron; cashew butter for protein; and banana to sweeten it naturally.
For all of you mint-chocolate ice cream lovers out there, meet its healthier and equally delicious cousin.
