Chocolate Mint Smoothie #MyVega

chocolate-mint-smoothie

Chocolate and mint.

One of my most favourite combinations – especially around Christmas time! I still remember sneaking away with a box of After Eight chocolates when I was little! I adore thin mints, chocolate mint Girl Guide cookies, peppermint patties, and now they even make chocolate mint Oreo’s! And please don’t get me started on Peppermint Mochas or Candy Cane Hot Chocolates. YUM!

It’s a lot of indulgence, and I have to remind myself to keep my diet balanced this time of year. Chocolates are great, but seventeen too many and I’ll need to go up a pant size! So what better way to experience the delicious flavours of chocolate and mint than in a nutritious smoothie?

I used the Vega One Nutritional Shake in Chocolate as a base, and added in peppermint tea with fresh mint to boot! It was delicious! A creamy, chocolate smoothie with a hit of fresh mint that makes you feel like you’re having dessert!

    This looks good! I like chocolate and mint too. Blue Bell ice cream in Texas makes a great mint chocolate chip ice cream that is amazing in the hot summer there!
