Coconut Mint Chip Shake

Mint Chip Milkshake by Sophia Z from Love and Lentils

I was a huge fan of milkshakes growing up (who wasn’t??). My all-time favorite ice cream flavor has always been mint chocolate chip, and today, it’s my son’s favorite as well. He never, ever gets anything different, it’s mint chip all.the.time. I thought of combining these two delicious childhood favorites into one leaner, greener dairy-free drink. There’s no artificial color here, the beautiful green color comes from healthy baby spinach. The flavor has the perfect amount of mint, and you can top your milkshake with chocolate chips like I did, or cacao nibs for a bittersweet flavor.

Makes 1 large serving 

  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves, stems removed (about 10-15 sprigs)
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
  • 1 tablespoon vegan chocolate chips for garnish

Combine all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a blender.

Blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled glass and garnish with chocolate chips. Enjoy!

    Looks delicious! Could the peppermint extract be substituted with peppermint oil or actual mint leaves?

    Hello — peppermint oil is very intense, so start with just a drop and taste; go from there. Fresh mint leaves would be great, especially this time of year! Again, start with a few, then add more to taste.

    I love your recipes but is there any way you could also post the nutrition facts? I would like to know how many calories they are.

    Thanks Marlene (and Brandy) — we’re working on getting nutrition stats on all the recipes. In the meantime, you can use the nutrition calculator on My Fitness Pal to estimate the macro nutrients on these or any other recipes you run across on the web.
