This title was supposed to be “Three [Insert Adjective] Smoothies”. What is better than one smoothie? Ba, ezintathu, dres, trois, sa tulo ka, tiga, twa. All of those mean three in various languages. English gets boring sometimes, ya know?
The other two smoothies were fine. But if you get one thing out of this blog post, the word “fine” in the female vocabulary is not good. Red flags galore. Make those white flags because “fine” is synonymous with surrender.
This thin mint smoothie was my first creation of the three. Anticipating that I would have a few pictures for each smoothie, I only took two. Aka two pictures in my terribly lit apartment that makes this smoothie look like a freshly pressed green juice.
Example A. It’s pretty rough. BUT IT’S SO GOOD! Like pick it up to take a sip and only put it down again because the glass is empty good. Like open a box of thin mints and knock out a sleeve in less than a minute good.
With only five ingredients that are available all year (WHY DO GIRL SCOUT COOKIES COME OUT THE SAME TIME OF YEAR AS LENT), you can recreate the irresistible cookie in the bright green box. I promise you’ll love it. Scouts honor.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 tsp peppermint
- Chocolate chips (I chopped my chocolate bar)
Throw these into the blender, give it a whirl, pour it into a cup and taste the sweet satisfaction of minty chocolatey green goodness. Or skip the third step because a blender is basically a big cup. Same some soap, save some water, and enjoy!
The official Girl Scout Mission is “Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” I tweaked it a bit for this recipe. “The thin mint smoothie builds a drink of courage, confidence and character that makes the world a better place.” Emphasis on makes the world a better place.
