Tips & Tricks

  • If not using chopped chocolate, use cacao nibs or your choice of nuts instead. Both will help add great texture and antioxidants to this drink.
  • You can swap fresh mint leaves for food-grade essential mint oil or mint extract.
  • This smoothie will get its sweetness from the added protein powder. If you need it to be sweeter, add a couple of drops of stevia or use a different sweetener.
  • Drink this smoothie as soon as possible. The greens in it will oxidize and turn brown if left sitting for too long.
