Yield1 large serving
3 bananas (frozen)
12 large mint leaves (1 to 1 1/2 inches long)
12 raw cacao beans
2½ tablespoons maple syrup
¼ cup water
1. Begin by placing the cacao beans, mint leaves, maple syrup and water in the Vitamix.
2. Then place the bananas on top of all the other ingredients in the Vitamix.
3. Start on low speed and increase as the beans get chopped and the bananas break down. Blend until the mixture is creamy with no chunks and small flecks of the cacao.
4. Pour into a bowl and enjoy straight away or place in the freezer for a little bit.
VIBRANCE's ThoughtsBy VIBRANCE
Creamy, cold, and delicious!
Note: If you don’t have cacao beans, you can use raw cacao powder--this will change the color to a chocolate color, but it still tastes good. Another option is to take half of a green and black dark chocolate bar (85%) and throw it in.
Another note: Be sure to use ripe bananas with no green when freezing them. Bananas that are even the least bit green have a binding effect in the body, whereas ripe bananas pass right through!
