This is the best chocolate mint smoothie recipe. Easy to make this dairy free smoothie is so rich and bursting with chocolate mint flavour. This healthy smoothie is also vegan and perfect for meal prep.
I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick lately. They are just so easy and delicious! Plus the flavour combinations are endless. I have so many ideas for smoothies I want to make. I am sure they won't all turn out as good as I imagine they will but the one I am sharing with you today sure did.
If you have been following my blog for a while you have probably come to realize that I try to use very little added sweeteners in my recipes. And while I do think the occasional treat with some added sugar is totally fine, I personally try to avoid added sugars on a daily basis. Which is where this smoothie comes in. It is sweetened only with fruit and coconut. Amazing right? A totally guilt free smoothie option.
I don't know about you but I have always loved the flavour combination of mint and chocolate. Did you ever eat Girl Guide Cookies? I never liked the classic vanilla or chocolate ones very much, but man oh man when they sold those mint chocolate ones at Christmas time you could not keep me away from those bad boys. Or After Eight Chocolates? Oh yum. I hate to think what kind of ingredients are hiding in either of those treats. You can be sure there are a few unpronounceable words in those little delights. But you won't find any of those in this smoothie that's for sure. Only real ingredients here my friends.
In fact, this smoothie, believe it or not, only has 7 ingredients in it! Yep it's not only super tasty (and healthy) but also really easy to make. Because I know you don't have endless amounts of time to slave away in the kitchen. Me either!
Besides being added sweetener free, this Chocolate Mint Smoothie is also safe for the GAPS, Paleo and Vegan or vegetarian diets.
Please let me know what you think of this recipe! It would make a great breakfast, snack, or treat. And I bet even your picky kiddies at home won't complain about eating this smoothie.
Until next time, happy eating friends!
And as always I would be thrilled if you followed my social media pages on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
