Low Sugar Mint Chocolate Drink
This drink is adapted from Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney and is delicious! The sugar content is very low (about 16 grams per serving from the agave). The original recipe used more agave which you can if you like! It's not very minty so if you want more mint flavour, add a lot more mint leaves ;) If you're turned off by opening a coconut, DON"T BE! It gets easier the more you do it and it's SO worth it. Not as thick as a chocolate shake but is delish and very similar!
Almost 2 cups fresh almond milk:
- - >1/2 cup raw almonds, soaked for 4+ hours
- - >2 cups drinking water
- - >1 tablespoon agave
- - >Little pinch of Sea Salt
- - >1 tablespoon grain lecithin (or whatever kind you have)
**Blend, strain in a nut milk bag.
