Healthy Shamrock Shake {Mint-Flavored Smoothie}
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 1 serving
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) canned light coconut milk (or canned full-fat coconut milk for an even thicker, more decadent shake)
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon pure (natural) mint extract (see note below)
  • 1 packet stevia (see note below)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup (1 oz/30 g) organic baby spinach
  • ¼ cup (1/4 oz/7 g) fresh mint leaves
  • 1 large ripe banana (with brown spots), cut into 6 pieces and frozen
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender in the order listed and process until smooth and creamy.
  2. Serve immediately.
Mint Extract: You can add more to taste, but many brands I’ve tried are very strong and if you use too much it can be overpowering, which is why I recommend starting out with just ⅛ teaspoon.

Stevia: As a guideline on how sweet 1 packet of stevia is: the amount of stevia in 1 packet measures ½ teaspoon, which is about as sweet as 2 to 3 teaspoons of regular sugar.

Topping/Garnish Ideas: A sprig of fresh mint, cacao nibs, shaved dark chocolate, or dark chocolate chips.
