The ‘Not-so-naughty’ Choc Mint Green Smoothie
2 large handfulls of baby spinach
1 small handful of fresh mint leaves
2 large bananas (preferably frozen to ensure the smoothie is really cold)
2 cups of cold milk (full cream cows, coconut, almond and kefir work particularaly well)
2 tsp cacao powder
Some dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top if you are feeling particularaly decadent!
Hint: this recipe can be quite earthy, I really like that about it, but if you are looking for something a bit sweeter add a teaspoon of honey (or another sweetner of choice) or just throw in another banana.
Blend ingredients together until super smooth. Always enjoy icy cold!
As always this recipe has been toddler tested and got the big green thumbs up. Who doesn’t love a cheeky chocolate smoothie on the weekend?
Do you have a favourite raw chocolate recipe for those days when we are feeling a need for something chocolatey?
