Experimenting with Girl Scout Cookies

March 5th, 2012 at 01:30 pm

Selling girl scout cookies is ridiculously easy. If that combination of youth advocacy & nostalgia is ever duplicated in any other business, watch out! It will break records. Instead of going through that box of Thin Mints or Tagalongs in one or two sittings, though, (and of course there aren't very many to start with in those boxes) here is a way to stretch them and enjoy for a number of weeks. And you won't be tempted to buy more boxes!

Invented by my 12 y.o. who is always thinking up stuff you wouldn't dream of! And a healthy afterschool snack to boot.

Thin Mint Smoothie
2 girl scout Thin Mints, frozen
1/2 banana, sliced and frozen
1/3 C milk
2 drops vanilla

Place in blender and run till smooth. Serves 1

And of course, she inspires me to think up one! Try it, you won't be sorry.

2 TB peanut butter
1/3 C milk
2 drops vanilla

Place in blender and run till smooth. Serves 1

Any more ideas? While you're thinking, here is a bit of sunny color for upcoming spring events.

Diamond Shape Stone Earrings
Cheerful clusters of pale yellow stone (chalcedony) shine on these nicely proportioned earrings. A bit of sparkle is added with glass faceted beads with a pink coating.


Casual enough for work or school, but the monochromatic color is great for a wedding or dressy event. 14K gold filled wires. A fantastic value at $15.00. More details HERE

Thanks for your tweets and feedback!

    Those are awesome smoothies! A great way to make a sale and make them last longer. Clever girl...who seems to have the entrepreneurial spirit of her mother. Smile
