Tasty and chocolate-y like the cookies…only healthier! This thick and rich Skinny Mint Green Smoothie will satisfy any craving, but without the guilt!

Can it really be February already?!

Well, we all know what that means… the Girl Scouts will be hitting the streets with their sashes and adorable sales pitches that no mom can resist. I think we can all agree that it’s best that we only have the opportunity to buy these cookies once a year!

Allowing ourselves to have these kind of treats every once in awhile helps keep us eating healthy in the long run. Being healthy isn’t about deprivation, it’s about consistency and celebrating the moments we do “splurge a little” and then get back to healthy eating. Having a treat shouldn’t take us off the deep-end. If we have built a healthy foundation, we can enjoy these occasional treats.

Like the cookies, only healthier! Skinny Mint Green Smoothie | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com

Don’t misunderstand – we love us some Girl Scout cookies, but we make sure to treat them like a treat (and share!). I’m pretty sure it feels like each sleeve of Thin Mints is a single serving!

This year, instead of overdoing it on Thin Mints, try this yummy Skinny Mint Green Smoothie instead. Not only will you be loading up with healthy fats, fiber, leafy greens, and fruit, it also has plenty of chocolate flavor! Seriously, healthy AND chocolate? Is there anything better!

    When you talk about medjool dates in recipes, are you referring to the big ones (3-4 inches) or the 1 inch ones? We have both here (in the UK) and I’m just wanting to get my proportions right!

  2. Dawn says:

    Nice use of my fresh mint! Even with a frozen banana, it needed something cold. Ice cubes watered it down a bit. But it was still good.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      This one is so tasty! I recommend using both frozen banana and frozen avocado. I do that and along with the spinach, mint, and almond milk (all refrigerated), my smoothie isn’t freezing but it is nice and cold.

  3. Dani Mitchell says:

    I love Girl Scout cookies, yet am trying to watch my weight and truly did enjoy this recipe. It has a very similar taste to the cookie, yet is even more satisfying. Plus, it actually is nourishing so my body will thank me for it!

  4. Grace says:

    I love to eat avocados, but can’t seem to put them in my smoothies…crazy, I know đŸ™‚
    What can I use in place of avocado, in smoothies?
    Thanks.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Grace,

      Swap in another healthy fat you love. My go-to substitute is a tablespoon of coconut oil or almond butter.

    • Amanda says:

      I am allergic to bananas, and I see a lot of smoothies with recipes that involve banana. Can I substitute an avocado in place of a banana? Or is there anything else texturally that will be equivalent? Thank you!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Allergic to bananas? I’ve got you covered! Avocado is a great choice + one of my favorite swaps. They make smoothies super creamy, but you may be missing out on some of the sweetness. If you need extra sweetness, add in a natural sweetener like Medjool dates, honey, or maple syrup.

      Other great banana swaps are – mango, papaya, chia seeds, unsweetened applesauce, pears, medjool dates, and nut butters.

    Would dried mint be okay? I have tons from my garden from summer!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Kayla,

      It’s definitely worth a try! Just follow the 3 to 1, fresh to dry ratio.

  6. Sandra says:

    Hi, am Sandra
    I have been trying your smoothie recepies for a week and a half and I really love them. Never thought I would really like them since I never cared for spinach and kale. I have to say they are really a boost. I can feel a difference in my energy level. Thank you for sharing all those delicious recepies.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Sandra,

      Thank you so much for reaching out + taking the time to share your green smoothie love!

      Cheers to health, happiness + leafy greens!

  7. Joanna B. says:

    YUMMY!! My attempt came out quite thick & creamy. I subbed 75g cashew butter + 2 cups water since I don’t have any almond milk on hand — so glad I bought a bundle of mint. A 1 ounce bundle, if you exclude the stems: leaves only is a *jam-packed* 1/2 cup =) Next time I will try 1 whole avocado + 1 banana.

  8. Michelle says:

    Hi!
    I recently purchased your 7 day reset cleanse… We are on day 3 and enjoying the recipes. I noticed for tomorrow one of our snacks is popsicles… That got me thinking that this is more of a summer/warm weather cleanse? We are in Toronto Canada, it’s still winter here… unfortunately ha!
    Do you have any snack suggestions to replace this recipe? We’ve been rotating the tamari almonds and apple almond butter… Might be over doing them đŸ˜‰
    Thanks for your help!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Michelle,

      Too cold for popsicles? No worries! Swap in a different snack from the meal plan. My favorite is our “donuts”! Maybe switch it up and use peaches instead of apples!

      Cheers!

    My daughter hates bananas (and dislikes fruit in general)…what is a good substitute for bananas in this recipe?
