Natural Chocolate and Mint Protein Shake


This natural chocolate protein shake is my new favourite drink with, or instead of breakfast when I'm in a rush.

Packed with natural protein with the rice protein powder and Greek yoghurt, this will keep you and your family, full until lunchtime.


2 small frozen ripe bananas, previously peeled & sliced

120ml coconut milk/ almond milk or regular milk

180g Greek yogurt (use coconut cream if you prefer)

1 tsp honey (I like manuka)

a sprinkle of cinammon

2 tbsp brown rice protein powder with raw cocoa or a natural whey powder

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Dark chocolate (70% or higher) and some white chocolate if you like, and fresh mint leaves for garnish


Add all of the ingredients to the blender and blitz until it is smooth and creamy (approx 3 minutes).

Taste and add more cocoa protein powder for a chocolate-ier taste and more milk if you prefer it not as thick. I personally love thick, creamy shakes.

I decorated the glass with Greek yoghurt using a fork in a flicking motion, for the pretty effect you see here before pouring in the shake. I snapped chocolate pieces and a mint leave to decorate the top.
