Refreshing choc mint smoothie

By Kirstin Sylvester RD, SA


(Suitable for Vegan and Vegetarian depending on protein powder used)


This recipe is my go-to smoothie recipe at the moment. The fresh mint cuts through the rich chocolate flavour of the protein powder as a perfectly balanced smoothie for a quick breakfast on the run.


I enjoy meal prepping my smoothies as this saves time in the morning and is a great way to utilize fruits or vegetables that will go off if they are not used soon. In this way, I can ensure that my healthy smoothies are quick and easy to prepare and avoid unnecessary food wastage.


To make this delicious smoothie combine the following ingredients in a nutribullet or blender of choice:

  • Half a frozen banana

  • Two handfuls of baby spinach

  • One handful of fresh mint leaves (I usually combine the spinach, mint and banana in a freezer bag allowing me time in the morning to add wet ingredients and blend)

  • One serving chocolate protein powder of choice (For this recipe, I used a plant-based vegan protein powder)

  • One cup milk of choice (I usually use unsweetened almond milk)

  • One tablespoon or 15g peanut butter (No added sugar and salt)

  • A few blocks of ice

  • Additional water as needed for preferred consistency
