This healthy, minty shake tastes so much like the famous Shamrock Shake! It’s creamy, cool, and sweet, but this St. Patrick’s Day treat is made with healthy ingredients that make it vegan and paleo.
Why This Shake is So Good
- This decadent recipe is like a rich, minty milkshake, but with real, healthy ingredients that make it good for you like a smoothie!
- This shake only takes a few steps and a few minutes to reach sweet, mint-flavored bliss.
- Dairy-free, vegan, paleo, and gluten-free, this healthy mint shake is easy to tailor to your dietary needs.
- Make sure to use mint extract, not peppermint extract. It can be a little difficult to find, so you can use peppermint extract if you absolutely cannot locate any.
- Use non-dairy whipped cream (which you can find at Sprouts!) as a topping to keep the shake dairy-free, vegan, and paleo.
- If on a strict paleo diet, skip the maraschino cherry and use a real one instead.
- We used homemade sanding sugar to decorate the whipped cream, which is really easy to make. Start with adding 1/4 cup of granulated sugar to a plastic sandwich bag. Add food coloring a couple drops at a time to the sugar, and combine by massaging the outside of the bag. If your sugar gets too clumpy, you can add a little cornstarch to the bag and combine using the same method.
