Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie Bowl

Mint chocolate chip flavor literally reminds me of summer. It’s so refreshing and delicious, yet it tastes like an indulgent treat. This Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie instantly became one of my favorite smoothie bowl recipe combos. It tastes like and has the consistency of froyo yet is packed with fruits, veggies, and healthy fats to keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.

Let’s talk ingredients.

Fruit:

The fruit in this smoothie bowl is frozen bananas. When making smoothies, you need to peel, slice, and freeze your banana slices. Frozen bananas make the smoothie literally taste like ice cream – it is a must! 

Veggies:

The veggie in this smoothie is frozen riced cauliflower. This is probably my favorite add to smoothie bowls. I was skeptical to add this ingredient to smoothies at first, but it actually adds bulk to your smoothies with no added flavor. That’s right, no added flavor. So you get the benefit of this cruciferous veggie without even tasting it!

Healthy fats:

Healthy fats are what will keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer. The avocado adds healthy fat and fiber to the smoothie, plus makes it SO CREAMY. Adding avocado to smoothies is a game changer. 

Herbs:

The herb in this recipe is of course, mint! Use fresh mint leaves for a fresh and delicious flavor.

Other:

Cacao powder adds a chocolaty flavor to the smoothie. Cacao is very bitter by itself, but when combined with banana, it takes on a sweeter, chocolaty flavor. Note: cacao is not the same as cocoa. The optional topping is cacao nibs. Cacao nibs are essentially sugarless chocolate chips. They taste bitter on their own, but when combined with this smoothie bowl, it adds the perfect crunchy texture.
