Chocolate Mint Smoothie

It's the February Fantastical Food Fight! and we are giving you all kinds of good recipes using CHOCOLATE MINT. It is one of my favorite combinations and I love sharing this good for you version of a delicious smoothie that won't make you miss the high calorie, high sugar version at a fast food restaurant!


This chocolate mint smoothie has a secret ingredient, and that is avocado. Why an avocado? Besides all the wonderful nutrients, the avocado contains good fat, which makes this smoothie very satisfying. The carbs will burn off first in your body, then this good fat will burn at a much slower rate, helping you feel full and satisfied longer.

  17. I love the combination of chocolate and mint. To me there is no better flavor combination. I think the main reason why I love it so much is because it reminds me of the Girl Scout cookies, Thin Mints. YUM!

  24. As a young kid my mom before becoming a nurse worked for Marriott and she’s come home with the thin mints or pillow candy she’d call it. I don’t know why but I associated that with a not a wonderful memory- but you adding avocado makes me wants to revisit my nemesis candy treat. Anything with avocado is delicious!!!
