Mint Choc Chip Smoothie

When I was younger I never used to like chocolate ice cream, but I would always choose mint choc chip instead, and I couldn't help but be a little disappointed when it was white in colour rather than green, believing that the colouring made it taste right. This smoothie is inspired by mint choc chip ice cream, but naturally coloured green with avocado and a little spinach, which I promise you can't taste at all, for that proper mint choc chip experience!

It's super creamy and delicious and uses a mix of fresh mint and peppermint extract for that classic minty flavour. I also used cacao nibs for a little extra texture, but dark chocolate will also work in this recipe.

So blitz up your ingredients, then pulse in your cacao nibs and enjoy your delicious mint choc chip smoothie!
