After dinner chocolate mints

Impress your guests with these delicious, raw after dinner chocolate mints. You can easily make these in advance and store them in the freezer until you are ready to serve!

Ingredients:

  • 200grams raw almonds
  • 1 scoop of chocolate vegan protein powder
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
  • Pinch of salt to enhance the chocolate flavour
  • Peppermint drops, I used the ones pictured. You only need a few small drops of these!

Method:

  • Place the almonds in a high-speed blender and blend until you nearly have a nut butter texture. It can take up to 5-10 minutes for the oils to release, so be patient and keep blitzing! You will need to scrape the sides of the blender every so often too.
  • Next add the remaining ingredients and combine.
  • Line a silicone mould with some coconut oil and pour the mixture into your tray.
  • Place the mixture into a silicone try and place in the freezer to set
  • Do not remove these until completely set as you will find it really hard to remove from the silicone tray. I like to leave them in the freezer over night to ensure they are completely set before removing from the tray.

Note:

  • I have made this with 2 different types of protein powder, one worked really well and the other I needed to add some warm nut milk/water to the mixture to help liquefy it.
  • Keep them in the freezer and remove 15 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
