Skinny Thin Mint Smoothie

My Skinny Thin Mint Smoothie is a healthy version of your favorite Girl Scout cookie. The best part is you can drink this smoothie for breakfast without a sugar hangover.

It’s the most dangerous time of the year… Girl Scout cookie time 😀

I was shopping in a local store last weekend and there was a huge table covered in stacks of Girl Scout cookies for sale. K and I gave up refined sugar for Lent, so no cookies came home with me.

Giving up refined sugar doesn’t mean giving up chocolate entirely. Last March I shared a Vegan Samoa Cookie Smoothie recipe. My goal was to recreate the Samoa Cookie flavor in a healthy way. Samoas are my favorite Girl Scout cookie, but Thin Mints come in at a close second. Why not create a healthier smoothie that tastes like a mint cookie too?

This Skinny Thin Mint Smoothie contains no refined or added sugar and is full of healthy ingredients – almond milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, collard greens, banana, dates, and REAL mint leaves. I used peppermint, but regular mint will work just as well.
