Yvette Dizon Hunter's Testing Notes:

The addition of chocolate mint to Amy4's strawberry lemonade gives this smoothie a decidedly sophisticated bent. The fresh lemon juice and lemonade balance out the sweetness from the strawberries and honey perfectly. Note: Though regular mint would work just fine here, it is well worth it to find chocolate mint. The flavor is somewhat like that of a thin mint candy, with the mint flavor more pronounced than that of the chocolate.

This smoothie is thirst quenching. I grow my own chocolate mint and had just recently visited the strawberry patch and deciding to whip up something new and exciting. Took some samples to work and it was a big hit.

Serves Two

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup lemonade
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 6-8 chocolate mint leaves

Blend all ingredients in blender, pour and enjoy
