This is the healthiest way I can think of to make a vegan shamrock shake.  Because I can’t eat banana (but did do a tiny try) I can’t drink it.  Hubby took a look at the color and said no thank you.   So hopefully some of you will try it.

IMGP7955 The key, frozen banana.  I slice up overripe bananas and throw them in my freezer.  For the color I used spinach and a couple drops of food coloring. I tried to counteract the banana flavor with some vanilla, but it may have just been overkill.

IMGP7961 Just because I can’t drink it doesn’t mean I can’t post it.  But I really do need you my readers to try it and let me know how it it.  The taste I had had the banana and mint flavors competing a little, but it was overall mostly minty.  I think my recommendation (and a little less healthy) would be to use half the banana and 1/2 cup of vegan “ice cream”.

I mean, right now it’s pretty much a mint flavored smoothie (not that it sounds bad).  I bet fresh mint would be awesome in this mix too.

So if you give it a shot, let me know what you had to adjust to make this perfect.  I mean, someday when I get over this banana thing, I want to make one of these sugar-free healthy vegan shakes.

    Gotta admit, mint + banana? Can’t say it’s a combination that’s calling my name. I do love banana-smoothie-drinks though (had one this morning)–hope you and bananas can reconcile and come to an edible agreement some day.

      Well I do love the mint banana strawberry soft serve I made last summer. It was such a favorite. I really wish I could try this one properly. But then again, I’m not complaining about how #1 and #2 turned out.

    Your husband is right. If you’ll just based on the really you would really think twice before drinking it. But me, I love banana so I might try this Vegan Shamrock Shake no. 3…

      If you try it, let me know. Frozen bananas really do make for great ice cream substitutes, especially in flavor combinations were a little bit of banana flavor left over is actually ok.
