This Healthier Low Carb Shamrock Shake is made without any sugar and also made dairy free!
When the month of March comes around everything green catches my eye. When I see all those green unhealthy shamrock shakes at the fast food joints, I sort of envy and then it passes.
Making recipes at home where I can control the ingredients and the sweeteners is how I like to roll these days.
This recipe has just 4 ingredients plus some ice to make it thick and creamy! Topped with a little dairy free whipped cream and some sugar-free chocolate chips and envy no more!
Obviously spinach is the ingredient to make a slight pastel green color, but if you don't mention it to the kids and make it when they aren't in eye's view, they won't notice and they certainly won't taste it at all!
Here's my quick and easy video to show you how simple it is!
Easy right? The kids will never notice there's spinach in there if you don't tell them and let them taste it first!
Healthier Low Carb Shamrock Shake
- 2 cans coconut milk 13.5 oz each
- 1 cup spinach fresh
- ½ to 1 teaspoon SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Peppermint Sweet Drops™
- ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
- 2 cups ice
- Combine the coconut milk, spinach, and peppermint extract in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust peppermint extract, if needed. Add ½ teaspoon of SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Peppermint Sweet Drops™ and the ice. Blend on high until incorporated. Taste and adjust peppermint liquid stevia, if desired. Enjoy immediately or keep refrigerated.
Do you have to have peppermint extract in it?
Well no, if you don't like peppermint you can leave it out but typically all shamrock shakes have peppermint in them.
Is the recipe available in a printable format?
Did anyone have trouble with this looking curdled? After I stopped the blender and scraped down the jar, the coconut milk appeared to climb up. When I blended in the ice, it didn't look too bad and tasted OK. Just wondering what the reason might be. I've made other blender drinks with coconut milk and haven't had this happen
