Skinny Mint Chocolate Milkshakes.

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. 

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. Only 5 simple ingredients!

It’s been far too long since I shared a milkshake/smoothie with you. And in true Sally form, this milkshake is “skinny.”

I’d much rather eat my mint chocolate calories than drink them.

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. Only 5 simple ingredients!

I made this cool, creamy milkshake after coming home from a run. I haven’t been running as much lately because it’s hard for me to breathe the cold, windy air. I’ve been embracing my yoga mat and 20-minute exercise DVDs. (Even though she sorta annoys me, I love this one.) Oh, and my camera + lens weigh a hefty 7 lbs, so consider that my arm workout every day.

By the way, do you like my running shoes?


I typically run in Brooks, but how can you NOT want to run in these? They’re Asics Gel-Noosa TRI™ 8. And obnoxiously cool.

Anyway, let’s talk about healthy mint chocolate milkshakes. Because I know that’s really why you’re here.

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I love to make milkshakes and smoothies from frozen bananas. Frozen bananas are typically the creamy base for all of my healthy blended drinks. Buy bananas, let them rot on your counter, peel them, slice them, freeze them. These mint chocolate milkshakes begin with 3 small very ripe, frozen bananas.

I know what you’re thinking – MINT and BANANA? Yes. But please listen (read?) when I say (type?) that the riper your bananas are, the less your milkshakes/smoothies will taste like banana. So let your bananas brown. You want dark brown speckled peels.

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. Only 5 simple ingredients!

Along with frozen bananas, you will need yogurt, milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, and a touch of peppermint extract. There is never any of that weird “healthy” stuff in my  recipes. Just pure, good-for-you ingredients that are convenient and easy.

There is a lot of wiggle room with these ingredients:

  • The milk can be any milk you like. I do not like regular milk (I know, I’m strange), so I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  • The yogurt can be any yogurt you like. I use non-fat Greek yogurt because of its protein content. You will need 6 0z of it.
  • Start with 2 heaping Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder. Add more for a richer chocolate flavor if you’d like.
  • Start with 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract. This stuff is potent. Add more if you’d like.
  • Feel free to add chocolate protein powder if you want. I do not like protein powder, so I never use it.
  • Feel free to add a handful of spinach if desired.

Decorate your shake! For the milkshake’s decor, I chopped up a dark chocolate bar and sprinkled pieces on top. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and good things. Plus, it’s healthy for the mind and soul. A few sprigs of fresh mint make the milkshakes look extra fancy… as does serving them in wine glasses.

I like to pretend I’m fancy as I work.

I don’t calculate calories for things made from such good-for-you ingredients, so please look up the nutrition information if you’re concerned. I do know, however, that these milkshakes are overflowing with chocolate flavor, mint flavor, and protein from the Greek yogurt. Keeps my muscles AND my tastebuds happy.

Slurping down this decadent-tasting milkshake after a solid workout felt like vacation. Even though I was about to sit down to work. Mind games.

Thick & creamy mint chocolate milkshakes without all the calories and fat. Only 5 simple ingredients!

If you love mint chocolate, do yourself a favor and try these bad boys! My recipe will make two large milkshakes. Halve the recipe for one or make it all and save the rest in the refrigerator for later, which is exactly what I did. Or umm, drink the whole thing. Because that’s ok too.

Since the milkshakes are sneakily “skinny” you can save room for sugar-laden mint cheesecake brownies or frosting that tastes like ice cream.

Life’s all about balance, after all. :)

    I run in Mizunos, they are my absolute favourite. But my running outside has bit a bit deterred too. It’s not fun to go out there in a blizzard when it’s -20C (not sure what that is in fahrenheit but I think it’s about 7F). Let’s eat instead!


    • Sallyreplied on November 19th, 2013 at 9:11 am

      I shouldn’t complain about our “cold” 35 degree weather in the morning. 7 degrees! What!


      • Schneereplied on November 19th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

        ummmmmm -20 Celsius is -4 Fahrenheit; -16 C is 0 F; and of course 0 C is 32 F 😉
        But don’t forget to factor in the Wind-Chill ;-(

        As for Cold, now that is totally different kettle of fish… being Canadian raised, I always thought that I was enured to the “COLD”, until I went to Liverpool, UK, to visit with my youngest daughter… (who by the way, gave me your website; she absolutely adores your stuff, can’t say that I blame her BWG) I arrived on Jan 24th, and for 6 months never felt really warm unless I was under one of those down filled duvets that they put on their beds… we figured out it was the damp in the air off the Irish Sea which made 20 degrees C (68 F) feel so chilly that it just soaked into the muscles and bones…. so it is all relative to where you are… 😉

    I love your skinny shakes, Sally! I am trying to get into mint mixed with chocolate. I never like it growing up, but the taste is slowly growing on me! I would love one of these as I am working and also that computer!
    I have the mac book pro, but I have NO MORE space. Obviously, you know how big all my files are and my computer runs so slow. YIKES. Has having that computer helped any? Or do you think I just need to be more organized and get my photos on a hard drive?!? Which I do, but I don’t do it everyday.


    • Sallyreplied on November 19th, 2013 at 9:06 am

      Tieghan, I know you just bought the mark iii but you should get an iMac. This thing holds so much, plus I have several external hard drives for my files so my computer can run at optimal speed. Look into buying one or getting into a payment plan. I have a mac book pro as well (it’s quite old), but I have an easier time working on this!

    • Sallyreplied on November 19th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    I think I’d actually be able to convince myself to get out of bed before 10 and go running in the morning if I had awesome, colorful sneakers like yours! And of course when I got back from my hypothetical run I’d want to treat myself to one of these. In reality though, I think I’ll forgo the running and skip straight to the milkshake…it is technically healthy!

    I love skinny shakes. I was making them on a regular basis awhile ago but took a break from them. Yours reminds me how much I miss them. Time for a new blender 😉

Sharp, clear, wonderfully moody and rich, makes me want to just dive right into one or three of these! :) And love that you kept it lighter. Who needs a 400 cal ‘snack’ that’s sucked down in 3 sips!

      I read the back of a “healthy” smoothie the other day and it was 300 calories for the 12 ounce bottle. All sugar! Id rather eat a red velvet cupcake!

    This looks delicious! I am not usually a smoothie/milkshake kinda gal, but my boyfriend has an addiction to those thick iced chocolate milks from the grocery store, and I don’t mind sneaking a sip or two. I won’t feel guilty about having my own serving of this recipe though! and perhaps I can even get him on the healthy bandwagon – I just won’t tell him though :)
    I am also a fan of Jillian’s DVDs. I let her whip my butt into shape at least once a week to break up my running and keep me toned. Great for wintery mornings too :)


    • Sallyreplied on November 19th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    I have a NoFrills (mid range market) grocery store nearby, that takes the single, unattached, bananas and those that are starting to go off, and packs them in 10 lb bags, for 2.99….. with an investment in zip-lock bags and some time, you could put enough down before you ate your way through them, for a month or more of shakes….. at least that is my plan,, I LOVE bananas too BWG


    • Sallyreplied on November 20th, 2013 at 7:16 pm

      I am very jealous that your grocery store does that, Schnee! I typically only see green and light green bananas at my stores and have to wait for them to brown. So I always try to buy a ton at once and freeze them so my freezer is always stocked!


      • Schneereplied on November 20th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

        We’ve been experiencing the same green bananas here, so takes longer for them to end up on the reduced shelf.
        I have been without a freezer for a year now, and just got a used one last week. so starting to stock up for winter… Bananas are high on the list, for baking. The Shakes are a great idea, and I’ll use them to replace the “Morning Diet Shake” I’ve been using the past 4 months. Perhaps vary the fruit in them, as we get California strawberries up here in the Winter and other fruit from South America. Thinking Vanilla Soya Milk might work better than 2% cows milk. Thicker without the animal fats.

But i really want to try dark chocolate powder and frozen raspberries :)) I didn’t think to try frozen bananas until coming across ur blog.. I’m glad I did! I was getting sick of the banana flavored smoothies, but now I can make endless variations of healthy ice creams/ smoothies and not even taste the banana or consume the calories! Thank u.. I love ur recipes!

      I’m so glad you like this Olya! Thanks so much. Whipped frozen bananas are the best, I use them/eat them all the time!

    I know exactly what you mean when you say “weird ‘healthy’ stuff”. So many “healthy” recipes I try to find include them in it! I’ve been looking for naturally healthy recipes like these and this looks amazinggg!! Trying these ASAP. Thanks, Sally!

    Finally made this – very good :) I tried it before adding the mint, then added the mint, and I have to say… I liked it better without the mint!

    I made it again with Toasted Coconut greek yogurt and 1 scoop of Chocolate Coconut protein powder (leaving out the mint) and it was AMAZING! Great base recipe — thanks Sally!

    Try raw cacoa nibs, it is a superfood.

    You’re shoes are GREAT! :) I run in asics too, I’ve done brooks before, but I always go back to my Asics NImbus.
    Thanks for sharing your yummy looking shake! I’m doing a Round up of Shamrock Shakes next week on my blog and I’d love to feature yours :)
