Healthy Choc Mint Smoothie

 

Oh I know, I know, I need an intervention.

My name is Bex and I am a Choc Mintaholic.  It has been… ummm…  about 7 minutes since my last hit.

BUT (and in my defence!), not to be confused with my other favourites, Choc Mint MousseChoc Mint Slices with Choc Ganache, and Mint Choc Chip Smoothie - the Choc Mint Smoothie has so much more to give!

The banana, cacao and cashews combine to provide a silky chocolate base whilst the mint and vanilla play tag on your tongue.  Who could resist, I ask you?

Not me, evidently.  xx

    Well, I already make your mint choc chip smoothie at least twice a week so I’m sure I’ll end up borderline obsessed with this one as well!

    This smoothie looks good enough to be addictive! Chocolate and mint are always a great combination!
