High protein thin mint cookies-n-cream dip.
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 where 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 say it, this recipe is fabulous!
High protein thin mint cookies-n-cream dip made with gelatin and peppermint.
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.
This protein low-sugar gut-friendly thin mint cookies-n-cream dip is perfect to eat alone or with your favorite cookie.
