Chocolate Mint Shake

So Monday night my husband and I had one of those hankerings for a chocolate shake. I occasionally make use chocolate protein shakes in the evenings for a treat, but the problem was that we had no milk (because after breakfast Sunday morning someone forgot to put the whole gallon of milk back in the fridge and we left for 14 hours while it sat on the table-but that’s beside the point-lol).
So I took this recipe that I had saved to try for the kids (sorry I don’t know the original source):

And I altered it slightly and made this yummy treat for us:

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Sucanat (I didn’t have coconut sugar)
Pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 scoop Chocolate Whey Powder
Blend together.
Add 6-9 ice cubes
Blend. Then add
2-3 drops peppermint essential oil and pulse 10 times.
Enjoy!!!
We really enjoyed our treat and will definitely be making it again!!!
