This creamy, minty shake gets it’s color from real mint plus a little avocado. It tastes as minty and creamy as the original version, only you can rest assured you’re only eating real, natural ingredients.

Ingredients

½ cup low-fat milk (1% or 2%) ¼ of an avocado3 big scoops organic vanilla ice cream big handful of fresh mint leaves ½ tsp to 1 tsp peppermint extract ice cubes, to taste 1 square organic or all-natural mint chocolate (optional)

Directions

  1. Place milk, avocado, mint and peppermint extract (I used 1 tsp) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add ice cream, 5-6 ice cubes and chocolate (if using) and pulse, then blend on high until you have desired milkshake consistency. Add more ice cubes if desired.

Notes: If this shake is not sweet enough for you, blend in 1 Tbsp agave syrup. If you want an even greener color, add a small handful of spinach leaves - you won't even taste them!
