Chocolate Mint Cooler

Fresh mint leaves blended into Teeccino Dandelion Mocha Mint gives this drink an extra hit of refreshing coolness. Cocoa powder is an ingredient in Teeccino Dandelion Mocha Mint but by adding even more, you get a truly rich chocolaty drink that doesn't have too much sugar compared to cocoa beverage mixes. Instead, maple syrup produces just enough sweetness to gratify the sweet urge and overcome the natural bitterness of cocoa powder. What makes chocolate really pop out is cream, pure and simple. Our friends at Califia Farms have made a knock-out creamer from almond milk and best yet, it isn't sweetened. Or use Half & Half if you prefer dairy. Either one will turn this Teeccino Chocolate Mint Cooler into a fabulous low-calorie dessert drink or simply a great pick-me up on hot days.
