Vegan Shamrock Shake

Enjoy the luck o’ the Irish with the fresh, minty flavor of this Vegan Shamrock Shake, made healthy by nutritious ingredients, like bananas, and made rich and creamy thanks to avocados! Get ready to dance a jig this  St. Patrick’s Day!


1 cup fresh spinach not frozen

1 cup frozen banana

¼ cup avocado chopped

8 fluid ounces (one container) Silk Almond Milk Vanilla Singles

4-6 Fresh Mint Leaves*

1 cup ice optional

1 teaspoon Cacao Nibs optional


Combine the spinach, bananas, avocado, Almond Milk and mint leaves in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Add the ice (optional) and pulse until a thick, creamy consistency develops.

Garnish with Cacao Nibs and additional mint leaves. Drink this yourself or share with a friend!


*You can buy fresh mint leaves in the produce section of your grocery store. You can also grow it (quite easily) outside. I highly recommend fresh mint over mint extract in this recipe. If you must use mint extract, add just a drop at a time. A little bit goes a long way.
