A minty chocolate smoothie recipe all vegans will adore

Who doesn’t love something minty and chocolaty? I know I do! I’m a former mint thins addict. Our love affair sadly came to an end after I learned about all the artificial, potentially harmful ingredients in every delicious box.

 

The good news? I found a solution to cure my mint thins ails. While testing many combinations for my new protein powder, I created a recipe that tastes even better than a box of mint thins and is loaded with healthy, plant-powered, real-food ingredients! Enjoy!
