Did you know that you can have your “chocolate fix” while BOOSTING your health as well?

Skip the sugar-packed milk chocolate and reach for DARK chocolate instead. It’s packed with antioxidants that will help neutralize damaging free radicals in your body.

As a result, you will feel light, bright and energized!

Health Benefits Of Mint Chocolate “Chips”

Mint

  • Promotes digestion
  • A natural stimulant that gives your brain an energizing boost
    • Can improve the activity of your brain
  • Has a cooling and soothing effect
  • Is an excellent smoothie ingredient, which is why we included it in Organifi Green Juice Powder

Dark Chocolate

  • Made from the cacao tree and is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet
  • Raises HDL and protects LDL against oxidation
  • Loaded with minerals
  • Improves blood flow and can lower blood pressure

Coconut Oil

  • Increases your energy: coconut oil is made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)
  • Speeds up your metabolism: when you eat MCTs, your metabolic conversion becomes faster
  • Boosts your immune system: nearly 50% of the fatty acids are lauric acid, which have potent antimicrobial properties

How To Make Mint Chocolate “Chips”

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce dark chocolate, at least 70% cacao
  • 1 tsp melted coconut oil
  • 20 fresh mint leaves

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate and coconut oil together.
2. Lay the fresh mint leaves out on wax paper.
  • Use a pastry brush to apply the melted chocolate on the leaves (or dip them if you find that easier!)
3. Place the Mint Chocolate “Chips” in the refrigerator to set

Storage: Place in a lidded container and keep in the refrigerator. Simply take out a few at a time to eat when desired!

The minty freshness of the leaves combined with the richness of the dark chocolate will leave your mouth full of flavor and happily satisfied.
