This smoothie is festive, fresh and delicious! The Chocolate Coconut Vibrance tastes great with a little high quality, food grade peppermint oil. Peppermint oil helps soothe the tummy, fight off colds and bring balance to energy levels with its uplifting qualities, making it an incredible herbal supplement to incorporate at this time of year.
This blend is a great way to enjoy the season’s flavors because it gives you your greens, calms the digestive system and satisfies holiday cravings all at the same time. Each sip will feel like you’re indulging in a bite of your favorite homemade peppermint bark. Find the recipe below:
1 frozen and 1 fresh banana
1/2 Cup frozen cherries
