Mint & Cacao Smoothie
This is a great tasting, smoothie version of mint chocolate ice cream. Some of the healthy green smoothies can be a bit of an acquired taste, but this recipe manages to pack in a cup of healthy iron rich spinach without you even knowing. The bitter cacao nibs add a hint of chocolate flavour and are balanced out by the sweet dates. A scoop of protein powder helps to give you a thicker consistency, and lastly the fresh mint leaves brighten the whole smoothie up. This makes a great breakfast, or post-workout smoothie.
- Add the protein powder and milk to your blender and blend until well combined.
- Add the remaining ingredients and blend until the spinach is combined and you have a nice green colour.
Adjust the amount of milk to get the thickness of smoothie you enjoy. Use a little less if you have fresh spinach instead of frozen.
