Vegan Gluten-Free St. Patrick’s Day Shake

Every time I log into Facebook this time of year, I see at least one status having to do with McDonald’s famous Shamrock Shake. Several years ago, and against my better judgement, I tried one. I quickly decided it was not for me.

It got me thinking — wouldn’t it be great if there was a healthier version, available to drink on St. Patrick’s Day? So after a little experimenting, I came up with a vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, “adult” version that I personally really like because it’s not too sweet.

This recipe makes about two servings, and is packed with healthy coconut-based products from So Delicious — a company whose products I really enjoy.

Combine all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve in a rocks glass with a fresh sprig of mint as garnish.

    Every year I get a Shamrock Shake, convinced it is going to taste delicious…and every year it tastes like toothpaste and I immediately throw it out. This year I have finally learned my lesson and just made myself a nice mint milkshake at home. I have no idea how Shamrock Shakes somehow wormed themselves into a nostalgic memory, but they definitely do not belong!
