Skinny Mint Chocolate Milkshakes

 

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. Only 5 simple ingredients! Add chocolate protein powder and/or a handful of spinach if you like…so many ways to tweak it.

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 1 large frozen very ripe bananas, peeled & sliced
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract

Directions:

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen banana.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender, in the order listed, and blend until thick, creamy, and smooth – about 3 minutes.

Additional Notes:

  1. The milk can be any milk you like: skim, 1%, 2%, almond, soy, coconut.
  2. The yogurt can be any yogurt you like: vanilla Greek yogurt, plain Greek yogurt, plain yogurt, vanilla yogurt. Non-fat or low fat. Same for milk, of course.
  3. Add more milk to thin it out. You can always add more peppermint extract and/or cocoa powder for a stronger minty and/or chocolate taste.
