Step 1: Supplies
This recipe is a single serving and makes about the equivalent of a 16oz Grande from Starbucks.
- 2c ice
- 3/4c milk* - the thicker the milk, the thicker and creamier the drink
- 2 tbsp chocolate sauce / or / Torani's Chocolate Milano Syrup
- 2 tbsp Peppermint Syrup
- 1-2 tbsp Green Tea Powder (make sure it is the kind that dissolves)
- 1 tbsp simple syrup (optional)
- 1/8c chocolate chips / or / crushed Cookie pieces
- Pinch of Xantham Gum (optional)
- Whipped topping
- More chocolate sauce and mini chocolate chips for topping
- Crushed Thin Mint Pieces (Grasshopper cookies are similar to Thin Mints)
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Blender - I use a Magic Bullet at home, it's great for making individual drinks though doesn't blend quite as well as the Vitamix
- Ice cube trays - small ice cubes make for even easier blending
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Cups for serving
*Replace 1/4c of the milk with strong coffee for a caffeinated version.
Step 2: Mix and Blend
Mix together all of the drink ingredients including the chocolate chips and blend. Make sure the chocolate chips get broken up.
Step 3: Decorate and Serve
Pour it in a glass and decorate in whatever way you'd like. I just used whipped topping and chocolate sauce.
Enjoy with your favorite chocolate mint cookies!
