Mint-chocolate Breakfast Smoothie

mint smoothie

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!

 

Ingredients:

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!
