Recipe: Mint Brownie Crunch Smoothie

by JJ Virgin on December 7, 2017

A kick of peppermint is the perfect addition to this fudgy smoothie – it’s no wonder that chocolate and mint are such a classic combo!

And Santa would be proud: while it tastes like a naughty treat, this protein shake does nothing but nice things for you. Not only do you get the health benefits of cacao, including a boost for your brain, heart, and mood, you also get all the good stuff that peppermint has to offer.

Peppermint oil – the ingredient that gives this recipe its refreshing mint flavor – is a natural antibacterial and has also been proven to help with short-term memory and stress relief. (Just be sure you choose oil rather than extract to get the most of out your smoothie.)  

Delicious flavor, all-natural stress relief, and a megadose of fiber and protein? Now that’s a happy holiday!

This shake is the third recipe in our Twelve Days of Shakes. Make a mug of delicious Power Hot Cocoa or blend up a Spicy Gingersnap Shake for more wintertime fun…
