One of my favorite dessert flavor combinations is chocolate and mint. It is difficult to find a vegan substitute that is not loaded with saturated fat. However, a friend of mine discovered a thin mint recipe that is vegan, raw, and refined sugar-free. There was again, disappointingly, that issue of too much saturated fat in the final product; if you look at the recipe in the link you can see there is one no-no ingredient in the list, coconut oil. But my friend substituted the coconut oil for olive oil, and let me tell you this is seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten. AND it is actually quick and easy to make.
I have used both olive oil and avocado oil as substitutes and both work wonderfully. This is best made the day before an event so it has plenty of time to harden up in the freezer. If you like chocolate and mint, you are going to absolutely adore this recipe like I do.
