Cacoa Mint Smoothie

November 26, 2018

cocoa mint smoothieAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
2 1-inch pieces frozen green-tipped banana (they have less sugar than a fully ripe banana), or a few ice cubes
2 slices avocado
1 handful baby spinach leaves or 1/2 c frozen chopped organic spinach
1 handful mint or spearmint leaves (about 3/4 cup)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp spirulina or Vitamineral Greens powder by Healthforce
4-5 drops organic liquid stevia and/or 1 frozen date optional
6-8 ounces water/nut milk of choice
1 drop organic peppermint essential oil optional
1 + tbsp organic cacao nibs
1 serving protein powder of choice

Place all ingredients EXCEPT cacao nibs in a blender and process at high speed until thick, creamy and smooth. Add the nibs and spin the blender a few times to disperse them throughout the mint smoothie. If your smoothie isn't peppermint-y enough for you, you can add 1-3 drops of organic peppermint oil (my trusted brands are Simplers, Floracopeaia, Snow Lotus) and re-blend.

If you have reflux, skip this smoothie as both peppermint and chocolate can be triggers. *Note: this smoothie is best when it’s had a chance to sit—the flavors meld beautifully!

Best Natural Pain Relief

I have chronic nerve pain and often get an extra impingement that is very difficult to get relief acupuncturist recommended Nerve Balm, so I tried it and it worked!!!! I will never not have it in my arsenal!! I even have prescribed compounded pain cream, but I would much prefer to use Nerve Balm first!! I have even shared it with at least a couple other people!! Will recommend to anyone who has nerve pain!! I am so grateful for this amazing product!!

I enjoy it inmy smoothie!

I started using this product at the beginning of the pandemic. It was suggested by a staff member when I asked about immune building products. I have been very satisfied with this powder which I mix into a smoothie or apple juice.The taste is fine and I feel like I am putting something very nourishing into my body. I highly recommend this product.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.

The best B Vitamin I've tried

I'm very happy with this vitamin. Easily digestible, and I can feel the difference in energy levels when I'm taking this regularly.

I love this

I take this most mornings for both a mood and energy boost. I also take it if I’m feeling sluggish and want to enhance mental clarity. I highly recommend this blend.
