The Mint Cacao Nib Smoothie I Wish I Had Years Ago


Mint chocolate chip ice cream was my go-to treat all throughout my childhood. I’ve been making a version of this recipe for years, but I finally wrote the recipe to share with you.

This Mint Cacao Nib Smoothie is a tasty, nutritious alternative to traditional ice cream which is full of unnecessary hormones and highly-processed sugar.
