Together, mint and chocolate are as timeless as PB&J. Here, hand-picked from some of my fave foodie bloggers, these are my top mint chocolate recipes – just in time to indulge in come #ChocolateMintDay (yeah: Chocolate Mint Day – it is a thing 🙂
Creamy and refreshing mint ice-cream stuffed with chocolate chunks is the perfect treat for warm summer days. This ice-cream recipe is dairy free, paleo, and has a vegan option as well. Ice-cream treats the kid in us all, so go ahead, have some fun and make some ice-cream!
This mint chocolate chip shake is an amazing frozen dessert to combat the sweltering heat of summer. It’s icy cool and refreshing thanks to the chilled ice cream consistency. Plus, the fresh mint adds a cooling element from its medicinal cooling properties. Creamy and refreshing ingredients are combined with peppermint extract and delectable chocolate chips to create a wonderful mixture of icy and creamy as well as cooling and refreshing. It is so simple yet delicious, and it is made completely without dairy products or highly processed ingredients. It is an unconventional, simple mint chocolate chip shake that can be whipped up in a blender for a quick icy and minty treat.
Here’s a recipe for a kickass smoothie, packed with greens, healthy fats, protein, and my favorite health food- dark chocolate, that tastes like an indulgent milkshake. The sweetness and richness of the coconut milk allows the base of this smoothie to be mostly spinach, while still being very indulgent! If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. BUT NOT in this case.”
Kale just flies around with its red cape and blue pants saving the world, doesn’t it? I think it also invented the internet and discovered penicillin. Here it is giving you vegetables in your froyo.
Leafy green veg and yogurt basically making a summer salad dessert. Yup. Add a big handful of fresh mint leaves and some chopped up dark chocolate chunks and baby, it’s like summer has come early (I’m steadfastly ignoring the rain dripping down my windowpane like ice cream down a child’s cone-filled hand). Forget about green food dyes, just add a load of kale. The mint and tang of the yogurt overpower any kale flavour and the chocolate adds a nice texture variety and extra bursts of sweetness. You can add a few drops of mint extract if you want a stronger taste.
Homemade Larabars in a new favorite mint chocolate flavor. These nut-free energy bars are a healthy high-carb low-fat snack with just 5 ingredients! The elusive exclusive Larabar flavor: Mint Chip Brownie. It’s not on the website. It’s not in grocery stores. It’s priced so high on Amazon I thought it was a pack of 16 not 5. It’s like the Bigfoot of fruit and nut bars. Does it exist or not?? It does. It’s just a Target exclusive and they are keeping it rather hush hush. How dare they keep mint chocolate chewy snacking from us!
I, along with the kids, have an undying love for both anything mint chocolate and chia pudding so it’s no surprise that we just can’t get enough of this mint chocolate pudding! Chia pudding is healthy and a great excuse to have a chocolate midnight snack when we can’t sleep. I’m quite certain you’ll love this delicious snack as well.
If you’re having a serious craving for mint chocolate but not looking for a serious sugar overload, this chia pudding is the perfect treat for you.
Hello, brunch food idea. I mean, I know I put “breakfast” in the recipe title, but this recipe was made for brunching on. If you are wondering, “what exactly is a peanut butter graham crunch?” Well. Let me explain. It’s your new favorite thing and I already have 8901 more ideas for other recipes to make with it. So what is it? It’s mashed up graham crackers mixed with peanut butter and maple syrup. And it’s the bees knees. (vegan friends, not literally<3)
