Today is the first day of my big 2L summer internship. For those of you who are not in the law school bubble, this is kind of a big scary deal! How I perform at the firm this summer is crucial–as it could determine whether or not I have a job offer post-graduation. But I’ll be OK–I’ve got my mint chocolate goodness here to keep me fueled and focused. This lovely smoothie tastes like a mint-chocolate girl scout cookie (without the GMOs or artificial ingredients) and has been doing a great job of waking me up in the mornings. I hope you enjoy it!
1 large fistful of mint leaves
1 tablespoon of carob or cacao powder
5 ice cubes
1 cup of coconut milk
1 teaspoon of coconut nectar (optional–you can also use 1-2 dates or a teaspoon of honey)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (optional)
Blend together on high speed. Garnish with a mint leaf. Enjoy!
