Mint Chip Milkshake (Vegan, GF)

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake

I do believe I just made the drink of my childhood dreams.  My all time favourite icecream flavour has always been mint chocolate chip, and today, it’s my son’s favourite as well.  He never, ever gets anything different, it’s mint chip all.the.time.  I was also a huge fan of milkshakes growing up (who wasn’t??) and thought of combining these two delicious childhood favourites into one leaner, greener drink.

I had so much fun making this and photograpphing it.  It was really hard not to take sips of it, but then I finally sat and enjoyed my awesome milkshake on the porch with a huge grin on my face.

There’s no artifical colour here, the beautiful green colour comes from healthy baby spinach.  The flavour has the perfect amount of mint, and you can top your milkshake with chocolate chips like I did, or cacao nibs for a less sweet, more bitter flavour.
