Serving Up {Dessert}: Chocolate Mint Frosty

Our family received a Blendtec blender as a delayed Christmas gift and we have spent the past six weeks LOVING it.  We have plowed through the recipe booklet, along with making our own creations by throwing all kinds of fruit and vegetables into the blender - add ice and it's magically a smoothie.  My boys ask for smoothies two and three times a day and I generally oblige :)  So much fun!

This recipe is not part of the blendtec recipe booklet, but is a recipe we have had for a few years.  It is a fun treat, made all the better now that I have the "best blender on the market" to make it!  This would really make a delicious Valentine's Treat for your favorite person should you need something super easy and quick to throw together.  If nothing else, hit the stores tomorrow and stock up on the mint patties that are in Valentine's wrapping that will be marked down 50% and you will be set to make this refreshing mint treat any time the craving hits!
