Spinach, Mint-Thin Mint Smoothy

1.5 oz spinach

1 banana

1 apple

3-5 sprigs fresh mint - stemmed

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1 teaspoon cacao nibs

1 cup water

1 cup ice

This decadent green smoothie gives you that thin mint fix without all those sugary additives. Refreshing and sweet, we don’t think there is a better combination than chocolate and mint. Aside from their great taste, cacao is rich in antioxidants and mint is known to improve digestion. Both are natural stimulants, so your energy and your spirits will be lifted. Add in a banana for a healthy dose of potassium to keep you hydrated, and you’ve got one perfect smoothie! Blending Note: Blend everything except the cacao nibs for 1-3 minutes. Add in the cacao nibs and blend an additional 10-30 seconds. This will leave some of the nibs intact, which gives the smoothie a slight crunch. Mint is best when blended fresh.
