Method Prep:10min › Ready in:10min
Blend coconut milk, spinach, mint leaves, cacao, peppermint extract and stevia in a blender. While blender is running, drop in chunks of banana, one by one. Add ice cubes until smoothie has desired thickness. Add water if the smoothie is still too thick for your liking.
Raw cacao nibs:
Cacao is the purest form of chocolate, before dairy or sugar is added. Cacao nibs are small pieces of the cocoa bean. You can also buy them in powder form called cacoa powder. It can be found in most healthfood shops and many of the larger supermarkets.
