If you love Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies as much as I do, you are gonna want to try this smoothie recipe. I am a FREAK for the cookies straight out of the freezer. Do you freeze yours too? lol
This recipe is packed with nutrient denseness and is super yummy too. I don’t use dairy so I substituted coconut milk because it has a rich, creamy taste. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Coconut milk aids in the reduction of joint pain and inflammation. Sugar is known to be pro-inflammatory. Substituting it for coconut milk as a sweetener can have remarkable results for those suffering from autoimmune inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus arthritis.
Popeye loved his spinach and we should too! Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2.
If you don’t have mint handy, I love using peppermint essential oils. Just a drop or 2 is needed.
