Vegan and Dairy-Free Smoothie

This smoothie is vegan or dairy-free. I use coconut-based or soya yogurt to make this smoothie. A protein-rich smoothie with added chia seeds that keeps you full for a long. One can use dairy-based yogurt as well.

Chocolate Mint Herb

This recipe uses fresh Chocolate mint herbs. Yes, you heard it right. Chocolate mint is a type of mint. It is not 2 different ingredients. I was intrigued by this herb when I heard it for the first time 3 years ago. I wanted to try it, so this year finally I am growing this in my garden. 

Delighted that I got this herb. It does not smell chocolate though, or I may be wrong. But it has a strong distinct smell to it. The leaves are big and deep green and the stalks are purple. As all mint this too grows a lot and I am now looking for ways to use this.

Recipes with Chocolate Mint Herb

I like to make infused water with this chocolate mint. The water feels so refreshing. I have also made a chocolate mint bark with this and hopefully, I will add the recipe soon. The rest goes into drying this out and storing it for the whole year so that I can make my infused herbal tea.

With all that said about the chocolate mint herb, one can definitely use regular mint or any variety of mint in this Strawberry Mango Chocolate Mint Smoothie.

The motivation for this recipe came from a book. It used thyme or some other herb, but then I thought to replace it with chocolate mint. Rest I am using fresh strawberries and Alphonso mango in this. Any sweet variety of mango will work. Strawberries give a little tart taste perfectly balanced by the sweet mangoes.  

Next, I am using vegan yogurt for this recipe, which has chia seeds soaked in it. This increases the protein content of the recipe and makes it a healthy start to the day. Vegan yogurt can be replaced with any normal yogurt.

I am using cardamom to flavor this as opposed to vanilla essence or anything. To be honest, we do not need any flavoring here, but cardamom adds a nice subtle taste.
