A GREAT RECIPE! MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP SMOOTHIE
Makes 2 large smoothies (or 1 very large snack/possible meal!)
350ml coconut water
1 large frozen banana (pre-cut into pieces for easier blending)
4 Medjool dates, pitted
2/3 cup raw cashews
1/2 avocado (optional – for extra creaminess, nutrition and colour)
2 handfuls baby spinach (you won’t even know it’s there, trust me)
1/3 cup mint leaves, firmly packed 1/2 tsp non alcoholic natural peppermint extract
1/2 tsp non alcoholic natural vanilla extract
1 tsp maca powder (optional – I didn’t have any in the house last night and it was still good!)
Pinch of sea salt
A handful of ice cubes
3 tbsp raw cacao nibs
Throw all ingredients except the cacao nibs into a high-speed blender and blend on high for a few minutes until smooth, icy and creamy.
Pour into serving glasses and sprinkle with cacao nibs.
Drink through glass straws and giggle with delight every time a little cacao nib works its yummy way into your mouth.
