Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Ohhh...this is a KEEEEEEPER! Easy, delicious, refreshing and filling. In fact, I was so inspired by this combo, that I've got a batch of similar elixir in the freezer to prepare Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. I'll be sure to take photos (if we don't eat it too fast ) for you to see. Mint contains Vitamin A, C, B12, folic acid, thiamine and riboflavin. It also contains minerals like calcium, copper, fluoride, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc. It's also been use to help with IBS and colitis. Drink up!

1/2 cup almonds, soaked overnight

Mint choc chip is my very favorite! I feel lucky that carob/mint go so well together those days that I'm actually respecting my ''not supposed to eat chocolate' thing.

I can't do bananas right now, but I'm thinking irish moss gel would work just as well in this for the same purpose... love

whoever says you're 'not supposed to eat chocolate' is afraid of being magical ;p
raw cacao is the most magical food on the planet <3
