I typically prefer chewing my food instead of drinking it, so I don't actually make smoothies all that often. But for some reason, I really felt like having one a few days ago after my run. A few failed flavor combination attempts later (I was over complicating it, throwing too much stuff into the blender), I made this one. It was simple, awesome and kind of tasted like it should have some alcohol and one of those tiny umbrellas in it... Not bad for a healthy post exercise smoothie, right?
Raspberry Mint Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- Small handful fresh mint leaves (5-6 leaves)
- 2/3 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
- 1/2 tbsp raw cocoa powder\r\n1-2 tbsp protein powder (depending on your protein needs)

Throw everything except the chocolate chips in the blender and blend. Top with chocolate chips (optional) and enjoy
What is your favorite smoothie flavor combination?
