No!  There aren’t any grasshoppers in this recipe!  This treat is packed with beauty foods, nutrition and is down right TASTY!  My favorite combination of food!  I’ve been daydreaming of this combination of mint, chocolate and creaminess over the past few days.  I was thinking of making a smoothie, but divine intervention came to pass.  When I came across the recipe here, I jumped to the chance to whip it up.  I adapted it a bit (I do that!), but that’s the beauty and versatility of recipes –  make it to your own liking.  I had one young thai coconut in the fridge that had to be used (so many ways to do that here!) and decided that it would be perfect for this recipe. 

Ingredients:

  • Meat from 1 young thai coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini
  • pinch of sea salt
  • vanilla extract – to taste
  • Sweetener of choice – to taste (I used Vanilla Stevia (NuNaturals) – 1 dropperful)
  • 2 TB. coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp. spirulina (for greener color) (optional)
  • several drops of pure mint extract – to taste (I like mine minty so I added more)
  • Cacao nibs or chopped 70% or higher dark chocolate ( I used nibs)

Directions:

Place all ingredients (EXCEPT chocolate/nibs) into a high speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend till smooth and creamy.  Pour into a small pie dish or individual mini pans (like I did – I ended up with 3 of these pans) and stir in the cacao nibs or chocolate chips at this point.  You could make this a pudding and place in refrigerator for a few hours or place in freezer for a pie.   If you freeze it more than a few hours, thaw before eating.  Either way, SCRUMPTIOUS!!

I LOVE the creaminess and the MINTY zing that blends with the chocolatey crunch.  Plus I got some veggies tucked into the mix.  To me, this a TRUE “Happy Meal”.  It’s even good enough to eat for breakfast.  I might just do that! :)
