Healthy Chocolate-Mint Smoothie

With warmer weather comes my smoothie obsession. In the next couple months you’ll probably experience a pleather of random (and delicious) smoothie recipes over flowing my blog. Today’s creation blew my taste buds away – and I feel the world needs to experience such deliciousness.  I was heavily craving something cold, sweet & chocolaty and decided to try and create something to satisfy my desire without breaking the diet.  The photograph doesn’t do it justice – I will try to make it more scenic the next time I make this smoothie but in the mean time you should try this!  If you do or have a similar recipe I’d love to hear your thoughts.
