Choc-Mint Smoothie

The flavour combination of chocolate and mint is a classic. This smoothie is rich in antioxidants, and provides so much nourishment, it will keep you feeling full for hours.

1.5 cups almond or cashew mylk
½ frozen banana
2 pitted dates
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
1 tablespoon cacao
½ tablespoon flaxseeds
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Few drops peppermint essence
Few fresh mint leaves
Handful spinach leaves

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
If you prefer a little crunch, hold off from adding the cacao nibs until the end and then pulse them in for a few seconds.
