Girl scout cookie season is here. I usually don’t go crazy over pre-packaged cookies, but these are an exception!!
If you have a box of thin mints in your home, I desperately urge you to try this recipe! You may never be able to eat a thin mint cookie in any other way.
I mean, really. How can you go wrong with chocolate + mint + vanilla?
The mint flavor comes through perfectly against the chocolate and creaminess of the vanilla icecream. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare and you probably have ice cream in your freezer and milk in your fridge right now. There is no excuse! 🙂
You can tweak this however you would like…if you prefer cream in your milkshakes you can use that instead of milk. If you want a fainter mint flavor, you can use less cookies. My husband and I agreed, though, that the proportions below created the perfect flavor and texture! Try it and let me know what you think.
Homemade Thin Mint Milkshake
2 cups vanilla ice cream (we used Breyer’s)
10 thin mint cookies
1/2 cup fat free milk
1) Add 2 cups of vanilla ice cream to your blender!
2) Add 10 thin mint cookies to your blender.
Step 3: Add 1/2 cup fat free milk and blend until smooth. Enjoy!!!
This is seriously such a delicious treat!
Serves: about 3
Disclaimer: Nope, this is not one of my super healthy recipes. I do believe in moderation, so enjoy this when you make it but don’t do it every day! Although, for a milkshake, it is a MUCH “healthier” option than what you would get if you ordered this at a restaurant somewhere… just saying. 🙂
