Mint Choc Chip Smoothie

Now that Spring has well and truly sprung, it's time to refresh the breakfast routine.  This mint chocolate chip smoothie is super fresh and provides you with a pep in your step when you most need it.  It's so good that I'd happily have it for pud, too.

Makes 2

300ml coconut milk
1 frozen avocado
1/2 frozen banana
1 small handful spinach
25 mint leaves, save a few to garnish
2 medjool dates
1tbsp cacao nibs, plus extra for sprinkles

- The night before, chop the avocado and banana and pop in the freezer.  I actually keep a bag of both topped up in my freezer throughout the spring/summer months - you never know when you're going to need some ice cream!
- Blend all ingredients, apart from the cacao nibs, until smooth.
- Add the cacao nibs and pulse to combine.
- Serve in a glass topped with some mint leaves and a sprinkling of cacao nibs.
