Shamrock Shake!

Yes, I know St. Patrick's was last weekend, but I have made this recipe three times since then! I love it and had to share! I can't believe it took me so long to discover the amazing treats you can make with frozen bananas-this shake being one of them. I used to trash all my overly ripe bananas until I heard about "Yonanas". It is a very special small appliance that turns frozen bananas into a vanilla soft serve. Now all of my overly ripe bananas get peeled and placed in a Rubbermaid container in the freezer. Once frozen for 24 hours, you can make some yonanas or a good shake (smoothie) recipe such as the one below ;)

Adapted from Healthy Vegan Shamrock Shake

Shamrock Shake

  • 1 frozen ripe banana cut into pieces
  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • 2 lettuce leaves ( I think anything but iceberg would work or you could use a handful of spinach or kale)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (may sub any non-dairy milk)
  • 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract
  • 1/4 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used hemp)
  • 2-3 mint leaves (optional)
  • 1 packet of stevia (sweeten to taste)

Method

Blend all ingredients until shake is smooth.


 
 
 
It didn't last too long!
