This is a must-make recipe if you’re a fan of the divine duo of chocolate and mint or you’re a lover of milkshakes -- or both!

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 2 tbsp Hemp Seed Raw
  • 7 pitted dates
  • 1 1/3 cups Coconut Milk Beverage, Unsweetened
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder, Natural Unsweetened
  • 15 leaf fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract, No Added Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

DIRECTIONS

1 Add the hemp seeds (hemp hearts) to a blender. Cover and blend on high speed until powdery.
2 Add the dates, coconut milk beverage (well chilled), avocado, cocoa powder, mint leaves, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. Cover and puree on high speed until thick and creamy, at least 3 minutes. (Hint: If desired, puree with 2 or 3 ice cubes for a chillier smoothie. Add extra coconut milk beverage by the tablespoon for a thinner smoothie.)
3 Serve in a large goblet or milkshake glass.
