Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Coconut Milkshake w/ Mint Chip Coconut Whipped Cream


I don’t mean to brag, but I consider myself a connoisseur of the chocolate aisle in the grocery store. I find myself there often. Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Coconut Milkshake w/ Mint Chip Coconut Whipped Cream
I’m often browsing the different types of chocolates, mostly dark, and I always find myself reaching for the same brand of chocolate, Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate. They are an all organic and Fairtrade certified company and they are my favorite chocolates to snack on and bake with. During the day I’ll grab a few squares of the 85% Dark Chocolate, and BAM! I’m a new woman!

With summer quickly approaching in Vegas, I find my kids (and myself) craving cold and satisfying treats. Popsicles and smoothies are usually our go-to, but lately my kids have been on a milkshake kick. Do ya blame them?!

Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Coconut Milkshake w/ Mint Chip Coconut Whipped Cream

I wanted to create something that was light and refreshing, but also indulgent and sweet for those hot summer afternoons. I knew that the Dark Chocolate Mint Bar would go perfectly with coconut ice cream! But then…

Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Coconut Milkshake w/ Mint Chip Coconut Whipped Cream

Fold in that Mint Dark Chocolate in some coconut whipped cream for a topping on the milkshake and it takes everything to a whole new level.

A level I like to call perfection.

The second I finished whipping these up my girls were jumping up and down begging for a glass! Too bad I didn’t share… Just kidding! I let them have a sip ;).

They loved the little bits of mint chocolate inside, which added a whole new level of excitement for them. Being a kid is the greatest right? The whipped cream was probably my favorite and I can definitely see using it again for other sweet treats in the future!
