Chocolate Fresh Mint Smoothie

I was reading through the newest Cooking Light Magazine and they have an entire article on smoothies. I find myself reaching for the same smoothie time after time (chocolate protein powder, banana, peanut butter repeat) and decided it was time for a change.

They have one that throws fresh mint into the mix and I decided to test it out myself.

The avocado is great for a dose of healthy fats, although you can certainly leave it out if you wish.
