The Chocolate Mint Smoothie is a delicious dessert smoothie that is low in calories, sugar, and fat. Cocoa powder is used to add a rich chocolate flavor without the high amounts of sugar or fat found in chocolate. Peppermint extract adds a mint flavor while also having health benefits such as reducing irritable bowel syndrome and a natural pain reliever. Instead of using sugar as a sweetener, this recipe used stevia, a natural sweetener that comes from the stevia plant native to South America. Drink the Chocolate Mint Smoothie for a delicious dessert that is not high in fat or added sugars.
