Vanilla Peppermint Smoothie

vanilla peppermint smoothies in two wine glasses with crushed candy canes on the rims.

Enjoy a festive snack this holiday season with an easy vanilla peppermint smoothie, made with just a few ingredients! (nut-free, gluten-free)


  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/4- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • Crushed peppermint for topping
  • optional add-ins: 1 scoop protein powder (plain or vanilla), 2 tbsp quick oats, 1 tbsp ground flaxseed or chia seeds


  1. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass and top with crushed peppermints (optional).


  • The vanilla flavor will heavily depend on the yogurt you use, I prefer a super thick, naturally flavored vanilla yogurt, such as siggi's.
  • For a lower sugar version, use plain Greek yogurt instead of vanilla flavored and add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • For an extra treat, add a few dark chocolate chips in the last few seconds of blending!
