531 300x215To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, if drinking green beer or nibbling on a mint-chocolate chip ice cream cone aren’t on your menu, we’re thrilled to share Rose Cole’s healthy recipe for her Raw Mint-Chip Shamrock Shake.

Ingredients ?

  • 1-2 Tbs cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 1 frozen large banana (the more ripe, the better)
  • 1-2 drops peppermint extract (or handful of fresh mint leaves)
  • 1/4 cup frozen spinach (or opt for all-natural green food coloring, or?just make a white mint shake)
  • 2/3 cup non-dairy milk of choice (coconut, almond, hemp, etc.? Use more or less, depending on desired thickness.)

Optional Ideas & Add-ins

  • cocoa powder
  • chocolate protein powder
  • garnish with fresh mint leaves
  • 2-4 drops liquid stevia (I love the peppermint liquid stevia from Sweet Leaf)
  • a pinch of guar gum and xantham to make pudding (or just reduce milk)

Blend everything together and enjoy!? For more healthy recipes, visit RoseCole.com.

    Yummy!

    My girlfriend’s and I made these shakes this weekend, and they were a perfect way to end a day on the beach. I don’t think they brought any extra “love potion” magic, but they sure were good.

    Thanks for the great work:)
