The prefect treat that also gets your greens in, Veggie-Loaded Mint Chocolate Shake is naturally sweetened, totally dairy-free, and a dessert that you can going to feel amazing about enjoying!
I have a mega weakness for mint and chocolate anything. Cookies. Candies. And definitely ice cream.
And, while, I do adore those minty treats, I am also very aware that they are also usually not at all good for me. Often loaded with processed sugars, artificial flavors, food dyes and who knows what else, those treats are just not something I opt to fill my body with these days.
That being said….I still really love mint and chocolate. And mama has to find a way to get fix!
So, now when a craving for something sweet and minty hits me like a ton of bricks, I make a beeline for my blender. Veggie-loaded to the max but still tasting like a milk shake, this Veggie-Loaded Mint Chocolate Shake is going to be a frequent flyer in my house from here on out! I love that it is loaded with simple, real food ingredients that fuel my body and is naturally sweetened to perfection.
It’s totally adaptable to your own personal preference, so you can make this bad boy as sweet or as minty as you like! Play around with the flavors, fall in love with it and make it your go-to dessert that your body thanks you for indulging in!
