Paleo Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Posted on July 30, 2014 by Alyssa Cassidy

Remember those shakes that come out around St. Patty's day, full of nasty green food coloring to make them a grusome puke green? Well we know mint chocolate is a flavor combination made in heaven, so chugging down a cool smoothie of the two is pure nirvana- and totally doable without your local drive thru. Skip the fake chocolate and envelop your mint with some crunchy cacao nibs instead.

Why cacao nibs? Raw cacao (raw chocolate, raw cocoa) is one of nature's most fantastic superfoods due to its high mineral content and wealth of antioxidants. Since many of the special properties of cacao are destroyed or lost by cooking, refining, and processing, planet earth's favorite food is still unknown to most of us. Now we get to reconnect with the power of real, raw chocolate! Raw cacao offers fantastic hope for chocoholics everywhere. You can turn cravings for cooked, processed, chocolate into super-nutrition of the highest order.

And Sunfood's are the very best raw cacao nibs available — we’ve researched them all, tried them all, and not only are Sunfood cacao nibs incredibly nutritious, they’re the most delicious we’ve ever had. Deep, complex, winey, fruity-floral and not too bitter (unlike many cacao nibs), Sunfood's Raw Organic Cacao Nibs lead the superfood industry in quality, flavor, eco-packaging, and antioxidant value. 


For this epic shake- you'll need:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 handfuls ice
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp mint oil or extract (fresh mint would be great)
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
  • inch of vanilla bean  
  • 1 tbsp of your favorite nut butter
