I’ve been a smoothie girl for a while now, but I’m always on the lookout for a different flavor.

While I adore my spinach strawberry breakfast smoothies most days, I like to shake things up with my routine. Which is why I’ll occasionally make a citrus smoothie or an apple pie smoothie.

So a few weeks back, I wondered if I could make a smoothie that tasted like a cookie.

Naturally.

Why?

The Girl Scouts have been combing our neighborhood for weeks now, selling cookies that I have a hard time turning down.

While I’ve gotten my hands on a few boxes, I’ve tried to show restraint because I can eat an entire box in one sitting.

And my favorite this year have been Thin Mints… frozen, of course.

So one morning, I decided it was go time. I had peppermint extract, chocolate protein powder and spinach. Why not try to make a Thin Mint Smoothie?

That morning, I whipped up a vegan rendition for myself and a non-vegan rendition for my daughter and nanny.

While my initial attempt was too minty (trust me on this, y’all!), the second attempt was just right. Those smoothies were guzzled in no time, and my daughter tried to drink an entire portion because she loved it so much.

So this smoothie is well-loved by adults and kiddos, vegans and non-vegans alike.
