Super refreshing and a perfect way to cool off on a warm summer day. Peppermint oil cools the body down, and also tastes delicious! I used raw cacao nibs for the "chips" - if you're not used to the bitter taste of unsweetened cacao nibs, you may want to use old fashioned chocolate chips, or sweetened nibs.
