This mint smoothie is über luxurious and pretty surprising. Because I added raw-cocoa powder to the mix I thought it would be really cosy and comforting – needing a good ol’ grating of nutmeg on top. However that was not the case. It’s really refreshing, thanks to the mass of fresh black peppermint I bung in. I am very lucky to have a thriving pot of black peppermint on my patio. If you use other mint you will need double the amount than I bung in, as the black peppermint is VERY strongly minty!

It’s awesome as it tastes naughty but makes your body feel really nice! Like you are feeding it something truly delicious and nutritious. I am taking advantage of Aars being away and added actimel to the mix – you can use live yogurt for the same good probiotics. If you are dairy-free, use your fave milk for smoothies. I’ve made it twice this summer already and it’s just as yummy dairy-free.

Oooo this looks healthy and delicious ! Can I use any other ingredient in place of Blueberries, Since they might be hard for me to get it here?! 🙂



hey there old friend! I moved my blog and thought I had lost all my old followers and friends – great to hear from you Zee! I hope you are well. I reckon any sweet, seedless fruit – like dates? Or you can make it without – for me it’s all about the peppermint and the banana provides so much sweetness you don’t really need to add in more!! peace and smiles to you and thanks for getting in touch! xx
