I love the mint chocolate flavour combo. It’s such a classic and so versatile – cookies, ice cream, slices, cakes and … smoothies? YAAASSSS! Big, big yes to this mint chocolate chip smoothie.

Actually, I’m a little surprised I haven’t made something with mint chocolate chip flavours yet … I think that needs to change!

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

This smoothie uses real mint leaves for that fresh flavour (it makes a difference, so try to use fresh mint over mint extract/essence if possible); and like the Cookies n’ Cream Smoothie I shared recently, a decadent raw chocolate blitzed through at the end for those amazing chocolate chips.

Did I mention this also packs in a serve of veggies? Yup, there’s a good handful of spinach in there – may as well get some extra nutrients in as well as naturally colouring it green. That’s a win-win for sure!

This fresh mint chocolate chip smoothie is full of whole-foods and even a sneaky serve of spinach!
Author:
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2 serves
Ingredients
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen avocado
  • 1 Vanilla Complete Sachet
  • 2½ cups non-dairy milk
  • Raw chocolate (for 2 serves)
  • 50g organic coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup
Method
  1. Slice and freeze your bananas overnight.
  2. Make the raw chocolate by melting the coconut oil over low heat, then whisking in the raw cacao powder and rice malt syrup until smooth.
  3. Pour into a tray lined with baking paper and set in the fridge. Once set, break into chunks and store in the freezer in an airtight container.
  4. To make the smoothie, add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender, except the raw chocolate. Blend for 30-60 seconds until smooth and creamy. Tip: put the spinach in first.
  5. Add a few chunks of the raw chocolate (as much as you dare!) and pulse until you have small pieces throughout the smoothie. Don't blend it totally smooth.
  6. Pour into glasses or jars and top with fresh mint leaves and extra raw chocolate or cacao nibs.
Notes
The chocolate drizzle around the inside of the jar is just a teaspoon of the Purehavest Coco² Original spread.
