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. I thought of combining these two delicious childhood favorites into one leaner, greener dairy-free drink. 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. This makes 1 large or 2 smaller servings.

    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.
