Chocolate Mojito Mint Smoothie

From July 2014:

blogger-image--1707395422I love the combination of mint and chocolate ANY time of year but especially when I can use fresh mint from my garden. This summer I planted Mojito mint for the first time and it has yet to disappoint my tastebuds.  Not only does this smoothie combination taste decadent, it is filled with so much health and vitality…calcium from the kale, magnesium from the cacao, healthy fats from the coconut oil and avocado, potassium from the banana, and pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and polyphenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds from the mango.

1 banana

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.  Pour in to a glass and serve with a sprig of mint.
