Thin Mint Smoothie0
Every now and then, my hoarding tendencies show up and one of those times is during Girl Scout cookie season. Usually, I pick up a box or two or four, but this year, I bought six boxes. And then my boyfriend bought six boxes. And then my sister bought six boxes and shipped them to me…
So now, I have 18 boxes of (mostly) Thin Mints. And I’ve eaten a lot, but I also stuck some in the freezer for the inevitable winter sans supplier.
The other day I had a craving for some Thin Mint goodness, but wanted to mix it up a little, so I adapted this recipe from Shutterbean for a Milk and Cookie Smoothie.
Thin Mint Cookie Smoothie
Makes about two smoothies
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 frozen banana, peeled & sliced
- 1/2 cup cookies (I obvi used Thin Mints)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons agave
Ready for the next step? It’s real easy.
- Throw all said ingredients into your Magic Bullet.
- Pulse until it’s reached your desired consistency.
I like mine thick and a little chunky, so I didn’t blend too long.
Pop a cookie on the top–as an extra treat–and enjoy!
