Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk the kind on the can
  • 1 banana frozen works best
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Dark chocolate shaved, for garnish

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine all ingredients except chocolate, and blend until smooth. If you used a fresh banana instead of a frozen one, you may want to add ice to make it colder. Garnish with shaved or chopped dark chocolate. Enjoy! 

Notes

  • Using full-fat coconut milk is key to making this smoothie resemble a shamrock shake. You can, however, sub any type of milk if you don't have coconut milk on hand.
  • Other topping ideas include shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
  • A little bit of peppermint extract goes a long way. I recommend starting with exactly 1/8 teaspoon (measure it out) and then adding more if desired.
