Once October is over and the craze of PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!!!! dies down, you know what is next: CHOCOLATE MINT EVERYTHING!!!!
I am proud to say that I can enable you all in that. I “forced” myself to be a test subject and try this out to make sure it was the good stuff. Just be forewarned that there is a fine line in using mint flavoring/extract. Go over it and it is like chugging mouth wash. And that isn’t what we are looking for in our morning go-go drink. Well, maybe you are…but I am not 😉 So watch your measuring of it….
Mint Mocha Frappes
- 1½ cups unsweetened coconut milk
- ½ cup cold brewed espresso
- ¼ cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
- ½ tsp pure mint extract
- 2 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
- 8 ice cubes
Add the ingredients to a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix), process on high, tamping as needed until smooth. Serve immediately with wide straws.
