Mint Chocolate Smoothie

Mint chocolate smoothieThis smoothie actually tastes like a real milkshake, except every single ingredient in it is good for you! The stars of this smoothie are:

  1. Cacao Powder – full of antioxidants (up to 4 times the quantity found in green tea) and a great source of magnesium, fibre and zinc
  2. Vega Choc-a-lot Protein Powder – this plant based protein powder is vegan, gluten-free and has no added sugar. A single scoop has 15g of complete protein, and 2 servings of veggies
  3. Organic Wheat Grass – one of the best sources of living chlorophyll; check out all of the benefits of wheat grass here. You can grow your own wheat grass and juice it, or you can buy it in powdered form. Right now I am using Amazing Grass, Organic Wheat Grass powder.
  4. Mint – good for soothing the digestive tract
