Skinny Thin Mint Shake (95 calories)

It is that time of year. The dreaded Girl Scout cookie time!  I love love love me some Girl Scout cookies!  But since I am watching my calories, I do not want to use 80 calories for only two Thin Mint cookies.  That being said... I still wanted to get my fix!  Since I am on a shake craze these days, I thought to myself  "Self?  Why not try to recreate the Thin Mint into a shake?"  That is what I did!  And trust me, this is SO good.  I think I would rather the shake then the actual cookie if I had the choice.  And the best part is, it is only 95 calories a serving!

Skinny Thin Mint Cookie Shake

1/2 cup no fat cottage cheese
1 Tbs Pistachio Jello instant pudding mix
1/8 tsp mint extract
   1 cup ice
1 cup cold water
2 reduce fat Oreo cookies
1 crushed thin mint cookie for topping (optional)

1.  Blend all ingredients except the Oreo cookies until the ice is completely chopped.

2.  Add cookies and blend some more, making sure the ice is blended in well.

3.  Split into 2 glasses, add your topping if you like and Enjoy this delicious treat!

    1. Thanks Yyette! I updated the post with the WW points addition.

  2. Is the optional, crushed, thin mint cookie included in the calorie count?
    I love thin mint cookies and can't wait to try this recipe.

    1. No the thin mint cookie is not included in the calorie count. I wish!! lol

  3. Is this good without any cookies added? I fear overdoing it if i buy a big box of Oreos (and i dont believe the Oreo six-packs come in Reduced Fat variety). I am trying to eliminate sugar from my diet - at least for now.
