Healthy Thin Mint Shake with Young Living Essential Oils

Healthy Chocolate Thin Mint Shake

We all love chocolate. Or at least, I do. But I’ll be the first to admit, it’s far too easy to over indulge. This thin mint shake, though? ZERO Guilt because it’s nutrition with ZERO yuck.

When you’re on a health food diet / clean eating kick / healthy lifestyle change, like yours truly, you have to limit treats. I get that. You have goals.

Luckily, this shake is only tastes like it’s sinful and full of sugar, but it’s truly an example of chocolaty nutrition at its best! It uses Young Living’s Pure Protein Complete- Chocolate. And that gives it the decadent chocolate flavor.

Young Living Healthy Chocolate Thin Mint Shake

This recipe for the healthy chocolate thin mint shake uses only a select few ingredients, 5 to be exact. And of those five, two of those can be purchased from my Young Living site @

Easy Peasy, right?

This shake would be a great stand alone breakfast, snack, or evening pick me up. Healthier than a handful of fun size candy bars, that’s for sure. Not that I ever indulge in fun size candy bars. Like Snickers. Or Milky Way. Or 3 Musketeers. Oh wait!

Burn! Caught red handed. But at least they’re inspirational. That’s what I tell myself when I succumb to my cravings.

And, may I also mention, all fun size candy bars aside, that even though this healthy chocolate thin mint shake is great as a stand alone breakfast, you could also pair it with my Orange Zest and Lavender Muffins to make it a solid meal. Shake, plus HEALTHY muffin, equals win!

Okay, back to business.

To Make the Chocolate Thin Mint Shake

To make this extremely nutritious, yumm-alicious chocolate shake, which I received courtesy of Essential Oils magazine, from the publishers of Success Magazine- which is FULL of DIY crafts and healthy recipes like this one,

You will need:

Ice

One Banana

One scoop Pure Protein Complete-Chocolate (which you again, can buy by clicking here)

One cup unsweetened coconut milk

3 drops Peppermint Vitality ( want a pure version of this oil you can trust? click here to get Young Living’s with the Seed to Seal PROMISE!)

Just a note, too, before we begin making this awesome shake!

Young Living Vitality Oils

When it comes to essential oils, a lot of people ask me, can you safely ingest them?! And my answer is…

The ONLY essential oils I personally eat / drink / add to my food belong to YOUNG LIVING’S VITALITY LINE!

And on my first blog, I describe my why for choosing Young Living essential oils over other brands many times over. Definitely something to read up on when considering quality.

Now that you have all your ingredients together, the rest is easy.

Pop everything, including the amount of ice of your choice, your oils, protein, milk, and banana into a blender (I use a Nutribullet).

Blend until smooth, pour into your favorite shaker or frosty tumbler, and enjoy!

Young Living Essential Oils- Getting Started

Hey guys, if you were wondering how you could snatch up some super awesome essential oils, you can always check out my site, www.MyYL.com/TheBlessedAndBusyFamily

This is where I keep a running list of some of my personal favorites, like Lemon Vitality, Lavender Vitality, and yes, Peppermint Vitality, which we used today.

The great thing is that Young Living offers essential oils in both kits as well as separate. The best way to buy (again, this is my opinion, if you’re looking to start detoxing your home and living chemical free) is to get what’s called a PREMIUM STARTER KIT.

The premium starter kit, PSK for short- is a set of some of Young Living‘s most POPULAR oils. For one low price (compared to if you bought each oil separately).

In a PSK, you can get Peppermint Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Lemon Vitality, and a TON of other great oils.

Oils like Lavender, PanAway, and STRESS AWAY (my personal FAVORITE).

The PSK also comes with a diffuser, the set of 11 of Young Living‘s most popular essential oils, 2 samples of their AMAZING antioxidant rich wolfberry drink, called Ningxia Red. Plus, there’s a roller, the latest issue of Essential Oils magazine, and sample cards, so when you LOVE IT, you can SHARE IT!

If you’re interested in purchasing what I would personally term a LIFE CHANGING kit, you can get them by clicking the link below

Because, if you’re like me, you realize that for every oil you bring into your home, that’s one fewer chemical that you need to make your house more of a home. They’re just that versatile!
