Why have a regular Shamrock Shake when you can have a coffee and chocolate-infused Mocha Mint Superfood Shamrock Shake? This simple recipe is packed with nutrition and made with delicious, 100% plant-based ingredients. Supercharge your day with this tasty superfood shake!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (RFR tip - raw almond or coconut milk would work great!)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 cup loose-leaf spinach (or ½ cup frozen spinach)
  • ½ a frozen banana (or you could use 1 Medjool date or a pinch of stevia)
  • a tiny drop of peppermint extract (I used peppermint essential oil) or fresh mint leaves
  • 1 scoop or packet of chocolate or mocha-flavored plant-based nutritional shake, such as Vega One Mocha Nutritional Shake
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • optional toppings - unsweetened yogurt (such as coconut yogurt) and raw cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients except the toppings to a blender in the order listed.
  2. Blend on low, then progress to high until thick and creamy.
  3. Pour/scoop into a glass and leave enough at the top to add a dollop of unsweetened non-dairy yogurt and some raw cacao nibs.
  4. Freeze for 20 minutes to let it set up and get thicker as well as more frosty and tastier. Plus, freezing it helps bring out the sweetness even more!
  5. Enjoy with a large, wide straw or use a spoon--your choice!

Notes

If you don't have a mocha-flavored plant-based nutritional shake, just use chocolate flavored plant-based protein, a scoop of your favorite greens powder (such as Amazing Grass Cacao Infusion Superfood greens) and a pinch of instant coffee grounds. It will still be perfect!
