Here’s a wholesome upgrade for a Shamrock Shake! Mint chocolate chip has always been my favorite flavor of ice cream. Whenever I’m craving my fave ice cream, and Kippy’s doesn’t have mint chip at their shop ;), I whip up this simple shake. It is a delicious St. Patrick’s Day treat, and creamy, minty, chocolatey, and totally healthier than your average shake.
Mint Chocolate Chip Shake
2 frozen bananas
2 cups coconut milk, I like Nature Value
1/2 Â cup fresh mint leaves
4 dates, pitted
2 handfuls fresh spinach
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2 scoops protein powder (optional)
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Put all the ingredients except for cacao nibs in the blender and mix on high until fully blended. You may want to add extra coconut milk depending on the texture you desire. Pour into two large glasses and stir in cacao nibs. Enjoy!
This looks so delicious, and I can’t wait to make! Are there any substitutes for banana/a way to do without? Thank you so much 🙂
Hi Bryn! You can try frozen avocado instead. You may need to add an extra date or two. Enjoy!!!
