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.
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.
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.
