Question: Mint in Smoothies?

I read a lot of smoothie recipes talk about adding mint. What kind of mint do they refer to? Spearmint, Peppermint, Orange Mint, something else? I could see maybe a Peppermint for one that has chocolate as those pair very well together, but are most recipes calling for Spearmint or just whatever suits your fancy?

I guess that when a recipes asks for a high menthol content, like with chocolate (a match made in heaven) that you mentioned, go for the peppermint.
Any other where you want to get just a note of mentha, so probably most of the smoothies, I'd use the spearmint like green mint or Moroccan mint. E.g. a Mojito cocktail made with peppermint is really hard to drink.
