I’ve probably talked about my love of peppermint choc chip ice cream on this blog before, but obviously making a diet-friendly version takes time. This little gem, however, is a breeze to blend up. It’s not exactly the same as the real deal, but it’s still damn good. Save this one for the summer, the appropriate time to eat raw veggies.

Choco mint smoothie

  • 1 cup x coconut milk (or use 1/2 cup x coconut yoghurt, 1/2 cup x water)
  • 1/4 x avocado
  • 2 x medjool dates, pitted
  • Handful x spinach leaves
  • 6 x mint leaves
  • A few drops x peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp x spirulina powder
  • 1 TBSP x raw cacao nibs


Combine all ingredients except the cacao nibs in a blender and pulse until smooth. Stir the cacao nibs through (and garnish with a few extra if you like).
