I was recently reminded that it is indeed Girl Scout cookie season. While I haven’t quite figured out how to order any this year (I don’t know any Girl Scouts!) I have satisfied my craving for Thin Mint cookies with this super creamy and healthy shake!Healthy Thin Mint Shake -

Curious about the ingredients in this shake?

  • Oat milk: This plant-based milk is naturally dairy, lactose free, soy and nut free.
  • Bananas: Bananas contain many important nutrients such as fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. They also add natural sweetness to the shake and make it thick and creamy.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is naturally higher in protein than regular yogurt.
  • Chia seeds: I like to call chia seeds “nutrition sprinkles.” They are filled with fiber, magnesium, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, and many other nutrients.
  • Pure Maple Syrup: For a touch of sweetness.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Unsweetened cocoa powder contains polyphenols, which may help reduce inflammation in the body.

Healthy Thin Mint Shake Tips

  • I like to keep frozen bananas in the freezer at all times, so when I crave a smoothie or a shake, the banana (which adds so much sweetness and creaminess) is ready to go!
  • This recipe comes together quick, so there isn’t much to prep ahead.
  • If you are dairy free, you can substitute a plant-based Greek yogurt for the traditional Greek yogurt. Just make sure to use plain, unflavored.
  • I love using oat milk in this shake, but almond, soy or dairy milk would work here too.
