Mint Chocolate Chip Cacao Nib Smoothie

With Easter coming up, we’re surrounded by chocolate bunnies and creme eggs left, right and centre. Why not swap the classic chocolatey treats in favour of this Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie? It’s just as indulgent as my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake but with a fresh minty twist!

Its rich flavours come from cacao nibs, raw cacao powder and a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil, while the almond butter, frozen banana and a small amount of avocado give it an incredibly creamy consistency.
