While you might enjoy mint in your day already in the form of toothpaste or chewing gum, have you thought about adding it to your day in other ways?
Mint is a sweet tasting herb that contains great amounts of folate, fibre, iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
Mint is said to help ease any digestive discomfort such as gas and bloating, as well as indigestion.
It’s also great when you have a craving for something sweet.
Today we have some of our favourite smoothie recipes that contain mint.
You will see that chocolate features heavily here, as choc-mint is such a winning combo!
