I am a huge mint chocolate fan! This shake is my dream come true! If you enjoy the combo of mint and chocolate, this shake is for you!
It’s completely dairy free as I use coconut milk. (You can use almond as well, but just make sure it’s organic). Then that minty green color comes from spinach! Sounds kinda weird, I know…but when it’s all blended up, you won’t even know there’s spinach in there! Then, the mint flavor comes from REAL actual mint leaves. I considered using peppermint oil or extract but I actually really liked just real, fresh mint leaves instead. It’s so pure and refreshing!
For the chocolate ‘chips’ I use cacao nibs, so there’s NO sugar! And to sweeten the shake, I use Stevia. But if you can’t stand Stevia, just use Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetener. You’ll have to add it to taste as I used Stevia in the recipe instructions.
