Move over Shamrock Shake, there’s a new minty favorite in town! This high-protein chocolate mint protein shake bowl is going to be your new favorite treat.

As a kid, I loved peppermint patties, probably because my grandpa always had them on hand and would always sneak me a few. Fast forward to today and I still love peppermint patties, however, they don’t find their way into my diet very often anymore. 

So when I had a craving for something chocolate mint, I decided to create a high-protein chocolate mint protein shake that would satisfy my craving. This chocolate mint protein shake is easy to make, full of protein, and plenty sweet to be considered a treat!

And, if you like this, you'll most likely love our mint chocolate protein donuts that is another chocolate favorite here at FHM.

  4. Remove the lid and scrape the chocolate mint protein shake into a bowl or cup (note: the mixture should be very thick and creamy!)

Swaps or Alternatives

If you have a chocolate mint protein powder, this will work great in place of using the peppermint extract. If you don’t have access to mint chocolate cookies, you can use a regular chocolate cookie like an Oreo or a chocolate graham cracker. 

Quick Tip

Peppermint extract is very potent, be mindful when adding peppermint extract to your protein shake to avoid overdoing the flavor. A tiny dash of peppermint results in big taste!
