MINT CHOCOLATE GREEN SMOOTHIE

In my last post (see it here) where I reviewed Aduna World’s Moringa powder, I mentioned that with this great ‘beauty boosting’ green powder I whipped together an equally great green smoothie recipe. Here it is in all its glory, a festive themed mint chocolate green smoothie bowl. Now I am a great believer that if you like something foodwise it shouldn’t be seasonal, some people are very stuck in smoothies are just for summer, and porridge is for winter. Now don’t get me wrong I love a big bowl of warming porridge on a cold morning. But sometimes I just don’t fancy porridge, and on those days I normally have some kind of eggs or a green smoothie. So here I have created a smoothie bowl which combines a few of my favourite flavours, mint and chocolate. Mint chocolate always makes me think of christmas, I think its the after eights? Anyway here is the recipe for my festive themed mint chocolate smoothie bowl 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop of green powder (I used Moringa powder)
  • 1 tbsp of yoghurt (I use coyo)
  • a splash of almond milk depending on how thick you like the smoothie
  • 1or 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • 1 small celery stick sliced
  • a few fresh mint leaves and extra for decoration
  • 1 tsp of raw cacao powder
  • Optional sprinkle of raw cacao nibs for that extra crunch

Instructions

  • Simply blend all ingredients apart from the spare mint and the raw cacao
  • Once a think creamy mixture has formed dust the top with raw cacao powder or nibs then the mint leaves
  • Enjoy x
