After decadent meals or a turn down service, you are sometimes offered a chocolate mint. Treat yourself to the same delightful service with a Chocolate Mint Blast. It has the soothing taste of mint and the lusciousness of chocolate from cocoa.
Instead of adding chocolate with added sugars, use cacao nibs. Cocoa in Nahuatl language means bitter water but there is nothing bitter about this recipe. Cocoa contains a boatload of antioxidants, iron, and fibre with just one ounce or 2 tablespoons! In addition to the usual, healthy nutrients, cocoa contains phenylethlamine or PEA that helps us focus and be more alert and anandamide aka the "bliss molecule". Counter the chocolate-y flavours with a delightful minty flavour that has shown to provide relieve to headaches, nausea, and calms your stomach to ease digestion.
To add a touch of sweetness to this recipe, use vanilla, banana, and almond milk to make this a delectable snack, dessert, or just because you need a moment to yourself!
