Why I love all things peppermint


As someone who has experienced IBS for most of their lives as well as muscle tension and headaches, peppermint as been a serious live saver! 

I wanted to share some of the reasons why I love peppermint for those of you who may not be as familiar with it!

  • Peppermint tea to decrease gas and bloating
  • Fresh mint in water for a refreshing treat in the summer…or in a mojito 😉
  • In essential oil form in a diffuser to make your room smell fresh and help me focus
  • In essential oil form in a roller bottle to rub on temples for headaches (keep away from eyes!) and on sore muscles. You can also rub it on your stomach when you aren’t feeling well
  • I love it in desserts because it reminds be of Christmas LOL
  • in personal care products and soaps for an invigorating sensation!

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

My favourite ice cream flavour is mint chip and I was always a fan of those mint chocolate Girl Guides cookies growing up.

This smoothie is inspired by this flavour but with a much healthier twist. 

I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint (or 1/4 tsp peppermint extract)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • top with dairy-free chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • optional: vanilla protein powder 

Process: Blend all the ingredients together and serve with chocolate chips or cacao nibs
