High protein thin mint cookies-n-cream dip (gut-friendly)

high fat high protein cookies and cream thin mint protein pudding purelytwins

We experienced some major camera issues yesterday while we were filming a new purely training workout video. Seriously cameras haven’t been on our side lately. We sent in our broken one, waiting for it to get fixed, so our iphones have been it. Ya, so the quality not the greatest, but life goes on.

We love making yummy treats that our stomachs like. Being in the kitchen is were we get to be creative with the recipes we make. When creating recipes we aim to make them:

  • healthy or at least healthier
  • use simple ingredients
  • easy to make (well most of the time)
  • and hopefully easy to digest.

Thin mints make our tummies happy as peppermint is soothing to our digestion. And these past 2 years we have been enjoying the addition of gelatin in our diet, which our gut loves! 

We were going back and forth on calling this recipe a dip or pudding. As it is very thick like a dip yet we ate it as if it were a pudding. Either way you see it, this recipe is fabulous!

It has been awhile since we have enjoyed our beloved raw vegan protein thin mints.

Both of us were craving chocolate and mint and these always hit the spot.

But we needed more than just cookies. We wanted something we could really sink our teeth into and cookie dough puddings are a favorite treat.

So, we thought we would combine the two –> our favorite flavor combo (chocolate mint) made as a thick dip!

This dip is easy to make and you can customize it to your taste and needs! We wanted this recipe to be cashew free so we used the next best thing – coconut milk! The full fat coconut milk from a can! More fat the better :) We always get asked what coconut milk we use and we always use ones from a can not cartoon. Canned coconut milks tend to have less ingredients.

If you do not like protein powder you can omit it or replace it with more gelatin. Keep in mind if you do not replace the protein powder the batter will not get thick. If you do not like gelatin you can use chia seeds to make a chia thin mint protein dip.

The gelatin used in this recipe is Great Lakes (red bottle) that we buy off Amazon.

Gelatin is great source of protein. Helps skin, joint pain, hair and nail growth, helps tighten loose skin, and good source of collagen.

    I love your recipes so much! Very much my style; love thick textures (that’s why I “eat” my smoothies out of bowls :) Can’t wait to try this recipe out today. And bonus – peppermint oil has been essential in my healing regimen! Oh, and chocolate. Need I say more? ;)

  2. Dana says:

    The more fat the better has been my mantra for awhile now! I always surprise myself how much butter and coconut oil I go through.. But so good for your brain!! This recipe looks amazing, I haven’t pulled out my gelatin in awhile so its about time.

  3. Jen says:

    this looks great, ladies. about to order a new container of gelatin and this might just be one of the first things i make :)

    I have to make this, looks delicious! My husband is playing golf tonight, so this will be my treat while I relax!

    FYI, be careful of peppermint while pregnant, and also while nursing! It affects your supply, and can also make you have contractions while pregnant. I am still nursing my 18 months old, and I can now tolerate a tiny bit, but have to be cearful. And specially with the pure strong ones from Doterra and YL.

  5. You guys have the best ideas! I loved your thin mint cookies and I just ordered gelatin – will have to try this out!

    Just wondering… how is this gut friendly? I know you say because of gelatin and peppermint oil, but the other ingredients sort of negate that, don’t they?

    • purelytwins says:

      well coconut milk and coconut oil are healthy fats that can help with gut and digestion, and ya the chocolate and protein powder can be fine for some. Overall it is gut friendly, not 100% perfect but nothing really is as we are all different. We find that our gut and digestion like it. Protein powder can always be omitted for people that can’t handle it.

      • Lisa says:

        That’s true about coconut milk and coconut oil, especially the latter because it is fat. Chocolate is super acidic so often that wouldn’t be touted as a gut-friendly food.

        So I have a question — you’ve been on this gut healing road for awhile, and you’re finding these things agree with you, but don’t you think that if you were healing your gut, you wouldn’t still need to be healing your gut?

        • purelytwins says:

          Lisa yep, we agree. Our bodies are a mystery that is all we really got. Overall we are both doing fine. And something we just cannot give up.

          • Lisa says:

            I don’t think I understand what your reply means, but thanks for replying and good to hear things are fine.

  9. You girls make the best cookie dough! I still make yours with coconut butter and banana- yum!
