Thin Mint Smoothie

It’s Girl Scout time again and just like every year, I watched as my husband supported the Girl Scouts by not buying 1 box of Thin Mints….but an entire CASE!

Nope, that’s not a typo - he actually buys a case of Thin Mints every single year knowing very well that I can’t have ANY because they’re not gluten-free and because I have to watch my girly figure. They get stock piled in the freezer and every month for a year he has a tasty minty treat. (grrrrr!)

So a girl has to do what a girl has to do, right?! Time to make my own version of Thin Mints!

Two years ago I tried my hand at making my gluten-free version of Thin Mints, but this year I wanted something a little healthier and easier.

Surprisingly, I still had some peppermint extract left over from Christmas so I paired that with chocolate protein powder, cacao nibs, milk and a little banana for creaminess and viola! A liquid minty refreshment that tastes like a dessert but is good for your waistline!

I hope you enjoy as much as I did!

(p.s. My hubby LOVED it so I think it passed the minty test!)
