I’ve mentioned before that sometimes things are super expensive out here, more so than I would expect. Mint is one of those items. I love mint, both in food and as a plant (even if it does sort of take over wherever it is planted). So, I decided I needed to grow my own mint so I could have it whenever I wanted. I put it in a planter all by itself in hopes it would spread out and take over. Now it’s time to use it! For this smoothie you will need:
- Coconut milk
This smoothie is made in two parts to give it a layered look, also, one part is vanilla and the other part is mint. I tried the pour over method to get the green to settle on top of the white, but it just didn’t happen for me. After I took the picture and my first few sips, I just mixed it all together. The drink itself was easy enough, though it was annoying to have to mix two sets of ingredients. I did the white part first so I wouldn’t need to clean in between blends.
Overall this recipe was just okay. It wasn’t anything special, and you will have coconut milk left over that needs to be stored. Not a big deal if you decide to make this again tomorrow, but something to be aware of. I probably won’t make this recipe again (not when that thin mint smoothie exists), but I do think that it has an audience that just isn’t me. Maybe it’s you? I think that this recipe is perfect for someone that regularly buys chia seeds. I didn’t put them in mine because I simply couldn’t find them and didn’t want to order them online. If that’s you, give this one a try!
