I love the creamy, thick texture of this healthy shake. Just like a good shake should be! It really is amazing how that comes from just a few ingredients – coconut milk, ice, and avocado. I’m sure you could take those base ingredients and get creative with other shake flavors too! To keep it low carb, sweeten it to your liking with my favorite stevia (this one doesn’t leave a nasty aftertaste)… but note that it is very sweet so you don’t need much!

I estimate that I use about 3/4 to 1 cup of mint leaves, if that helps, but it is really up to you. Fresh mint is usually in the produce section of most grocery stores or you can grow a plant at home. My grocery store was out of just the leaves, so I ended up taking home a little plant. We’ll see how long I can keep it alive though!

Now does this Shamrock Shake taste just like the less healthy versions? I wouldn’t go that far. Haha. But this shake is creamy, green, and minty though. One of my kids says it tastes pretty good and reminds her of ice cream. Some of my other kids don’t like mint in the first place, so their review doesn’t count. 😉

It is definitely a fun, easy option for a healthy and naturally green recipe! Would be nice and refreshing on a hot summer day too. Want to take your healthy Shamrock Shake up a notch? Use dark chocolate shavings as a garnish! Yum!
