- Handful of kale or spinach

- Or Fresh mint leaves chopped 2 T.
- 2 tsp. Fiber Boost
- ½ cup frozen mixed berries
- 1-2 servings chocolate Paleo OR Plant Power protein shake

Blend. So good! If you loved Girl Scout Thin Mints but have given up (or want to) sugar, this is your new bestie.
Flips to love: Mint and chocolate are both mood boosters!
This is one I’ll have for either a snack or for dessert. I’ve been known to put it in little shot glasses and serve minis! Little tastes of desserts really is all most of us want and this thin mint smoothie satisfies the brain in such a way it tells you you’re satisfied. Start small. If you want more after a few minutes, you can, no guilt.
If cravings are a big and regular thing for you, consider your micronutrient level. Could you be skimping now, or have you for so long in the past you’re depleted? No one ever said, I love to take supplements, but truth is there is plenty of evidence that it would be hard to eat all the even RDAs (which are no where near where most doctors think acceptable for thriving today). The best “diets” including DASH and mediterranean, along with Paleo… have been evaluated. It would take between 21 and 27,000 calories a day eating those diets to reach the RDAs. Not a recommendation.
So eat real good, real food, and power up your nutrition by taking in the BEST food like this thin mint smoothie (and others here in my smoothie recipe collection) so you can reach your after 50 fitness goals. I seriously think about women over 50 the way I thought about my toddler 20 years ago. I made sure every bite counted. I still do that for myself now. It’s got to be both good and good for me. Cheers to you and your thin mint smoothie!
