Healthy Shamrock Shake Recipe

Do your health a favor, and make your own delicious and healthy shamrock shake at home!

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 serving


  • 1 overripe large frozen banana
  • cacao nibs or chocolate chips, as desired
  • 1/8 tsp to 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract (I like 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • optional 1/4 cup frozen spinach
  • optional, I usually add scant 1/8 tsp salt to bring out the flavor


  • *If you can’t get on board with the greens-in-smoothies thing, you can opt for green food coloring or just drink a white peppermint shake (which is just as delicious). Or add a pinch of spirulina!
    Feel free to use your favorite milk of choice. Canned coconut milk will give it a rich milkshake-like taste, but I also really love the lighter results of using cashewmilk or almond milk. To make the shake: Blend all ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. Make sure the banana you use is at least somewhat brown, so you don't get that unripe earthy banana flavor in your mint chocolate shake! You can add the chocolate chips either before or after blending. Be sure to use pure peppermint extract, not imitation.
