Don’t get sucked into the recipes that use sugars like maple syrup, canned coconut milk, or weird fake ingredients like “Mint Chocolate Protein” or “pudding mix.” Even healthy additions can add unnecessary calories—and that is a direct contradiction to the “thin” in Thin Mint! The ALOHA version is vegan, has three servings of fruit and vegetables, uses fresh, real ingredients, and tastes exactly like those Thin Mint cookies we love so much!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup kale
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 2 Cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 scoops ALOHA Vanilla Protein
  • 2 pieces ALOHA Original Dark Chocolate, chopped

Directions

Blend kale, mint, and almond milk until the greens are puréed, then add all other ingredients except for the chocolate. Blend until smooth. 

Then, add the chopped chocolate and give it one or two more pulses so the chocolate doesn’t fully mix in. Enjoy!

Mint Shopping Tip

Keep both fresh herbs and dried herbs on hand. Dry herbs will last a long time, while fresh herbs have a short shelf-life.

Mint Cooking Tip

If you want the flavor of herbs in your food without the actual pieces, wrap them in cheese cloth and cook; discard before eating.
