Curb your thin mint cookie cravings with a Chocolate Mint Protein Shake! This healthy chocolate smoothie recipe is easy to make with simple ingredients and packed with both whey and casein!
Add right into a blender 3/4 cup of unsweetened chocolate milk substitute, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 serving of instant sugar free fat free chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract, 1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese, and 1 cup of ice.
Make sure you get peppermint extract and not mint as mint is more of a spearmint flavor.
Blend everything together until you have your liquid version of a thin mint!
Don’t have a blender? Here’s a link to the one I’ve been using for years and recommend.
Did you know that cocoa powder has no sugar in it and 2 grams of fiber for every 10 calories?
Pour your chocolate mint protein shake into your favorite glass and optionally top it! I topped mine today with some sugar free chocolate syrup and cocoa powder. Let us know what you top your shake with in the comments below.

This is so good! Sinfully good. Like, curb a chocolate craving good, and filling. It’s taking me a while to finish. Definitely worth of a meal replacement. I am drinking it right now, and it nearly filled a blender bottle. It tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie, but packed with protein, sans all that sugar. I used peppermint oil because I don’t have the extract. I must say, 2 drops are more than enough. I made it this morning and had to throw it away 🙁 because I used four drops and it was just… overpowering. I could taste that there was potential, so I decided to have it for my nighttime shake, and it’s awesome. Thanks! I have my eyes on that coconut shake next. Have you ever thought of doing an almond joy type recipe? With like almond extract, coconut[milk], and something chocolatey? I bet you could do it! Thanks again.
