The weekends are my favorite time. There are no meetings, calls or deadlines (usually!) and it's my time to catch up, unwind and experiment—and this weekend was no different. I've been doing my best to take a least one digital detox a week; usually on a Saturday or Sunday. That means staying away from social media, email and even work (shock!). The great part is, I've had more time for people and creativity. I've been feeling more present, having deeper conversations and coming up with some kick-a$$ recipes for you. Coming out of this weekends digital detox is a healthy take on your favorite Girl Scout Cookies—Thin Mints. And while I love all those little green boxes have to offer, I don't the gluten, dairy and sugar. The best part about these homemade ones is, they're only FIVE ingredients and take 5 minutes to make. Woo hoo!
All you need is:
- 3/4 cup protein powder
- 1/2 cup of cacao
- 1 tsp peppermint extract
- 6 -7 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- A dash of salt
Melt the coconut oil on the stovetop. Then add all ingredients together and mix well. Pour into molds or muffin tips (about 1 tbs each) and place in the fridge for 20 minutes and store in there until you're ready to serve.
