1 scoop (25g) vegan cacao protein powder

1 tsp maca powder


½ tbsp cacao nibs to decorate

½ tsp maple syrup to sweeten


  • Blend the banana, almond milk, mint, cacao, protein powder and maca together until smooth
  • Sprinkle over the cacao nibs if using

Mint chocolate is one of my favourite chocolate flavours so I don’t know why I have never tried this mint chocolate protein smoothie before! Any plant milk can be used but personally I love it with rice milk as it’s naturally sweet-tasting so doesn’t need the maple sweet. You can add a few drops of pure mint oil if you want a stronger flavour but I think it works so much better with the subtle flavour of fresh mint. It tastes like it should be a dessert but with the added protein powder it makes the perfect indulgent tasting breakfast or post workout smoothie!
