This shake is just way too delicious to be enjoyed only once per year. If you love all things mint-chip, this clean, healthy, and plant-based version of a Shamrock Shake will satisfy the craving. Made with coconut milk, avocado, peppermint essential oil, coconut nectar (or maple syrup) to sweeten, and a handful of fresh spinach for color. Cheers to spring!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/3 large avocado
  • 1/2 cup packed spinach
  • 4 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut nectar or maple syrup
  • 8 large ice cubes
  • 3 drops stevia (or another 1/2 Tbs nectar)
  • Optional: raw chocolate sauce for drizzling (RFR tip: you can make this by combining cacao powder with melted coconut oil and a liquid sweetener of your choice.)
  • 1 Tbs raw cacao nibs for garnish

Instructions

  1. Blend all but the ice and stevia in a blender until smooth. Add the ice, blend again. Taste, add the stevia if desired.
  2. Add the cacao nibs and blend briefly, until they turned to little flecks. Serve immediately.

Heather became a health conscious vegan at the age of 14 after reading the book Fit For Life. She discovered new ways to enjoy her favorite foods, particularly her beloved desserts.  Heather’s curiosity was peaked when she stumbled upon a raw food restaurant at the age of 16, and by the time she was 18, she attended her first raw retreat for a month in California. Her passion for food led her to a two year culinary school program at the age of 18. Despite the fact that she wasn’t interested in most of the food being prepared, she gained valuable experience by learning the basics and all that the food industry has to offer. She went on to work in various restaurants, bakeries, and as a personal chef. Heather's serious sweet tooth led her to author four raw dessert ebooks: Just Desserts, Raw Party Parfait, Moonie Pie Recipes, and The Ultimate Raw Ice Cream Cake. She teaches raw food classes, and hosts dessert challenges on her site: www.sweetlyraw.com.
