My favorite taste of all time is mint and chocolate – Growning up, my favorite treats were: Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Peppermint Patties, Girl Scout Thin Mints, you name it. If it was minty and chocolatey…I would eat it.
This is a great treat that is completely healthy while satisfying any mint/chocolate lovers taste buds. You can enjoy this warm like a mint hot chocolate or cold as a smoothie.
