Mint Smoothie

I actually have a couple of more cookie recipes to share with you, but I thought I would take a momentary baking break and share this healthy Peppermint Smoothie with you.

I’m a big smoothie fan. I drink them several times a week, and if you are a friend on The Foodie Affair’s Facebook page, you have seen many of my concoctions there.  I follow a basic recipe, which you can find here, but that’s just a guideline. The variations are endless!  Sometimes I keep the ingredients dairy-free and full of fruit, but for the stick to my ribs full meal satisfacition, I add a protein like yogurt or protein powder.

I should share more of my smoothie mixology recipes on my blog, but whipping up a beverage happens when I’m ten minutes behind schedule, and running out the door for work, so there is no time for pretty pictures!

Except for today! See I took an extra vacation day to unpack my suitcase from my Hawaii trip, go grocery shopping, bake, and leisurely enjoy a smoothie!

This smoothie is low fat, under 150 calories, and packed with 17 grams of protein!  AND no one has to know that it’s healthy 🙂

Take a few minutes to add the sanding crystals. It made me feel like I was drinking a high priced milkshake from some fancy-smachy restaurant. Quite decadent and special for sure, and guilt free!

  • 1 container 6 oz Fage 0% fat Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 5-6 mint leaves torn into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 drops mint extract optional
  • sweetener of your choice optional
  • Sanding sugar optional


  • Put a thin layer of honey on the rim of the glass and dip into sanding sugar. Set glass aside.
  • In a blender, add yogurt and almond milk, and mix together. Add mint, vanilla, optional extract and sweetener. Blend it up! Enjoy.


I use plain yogurt. I am used to unsweetened beverages, so you may wish to adjust to what you are used to by using vanilla flavored yogurt (which has some sugar) if you find the plain flavor too tangy.
