This vegan and keto-friendly shamrock shake is a tall, cool glass of minty, creamy goodness, packed full of protein to boot. Have a blender handy and you’ll be able to shake this one out in about ten minutes—perfect for that on-the-fly shamrock craving. Add in some dark chocolate chunks or sugar-free whipped cream and a sprig of mint to the top to really treat yourself. It’s healthy, after all!
There are really only a couple of steps to this quick and delicious beverage: blend, strain, throw in the hulled hemp hearts, and blend again. Hemp seeds are a rich source of both protein and fiber, as well as other nutrients like minerals (especially magnesium), healthy fatty acids, and vitamins.
Avocado and coconut milk—the other two main ingredients of this power shake—are also big nutrition boosts. Both are high in healthy fats, can assist in weight loss, and can help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Who said you can’t have a deliciously thick and creamy shake that’s also really good for you?
It’s easy to switch things up to your own preferences with this recipe, too: if you’re craving a real sweet treat, why not throw in some chocolate chips and zero-sugar whipped cream like we suggested? You could also blend in some more avocado for a bigger boost of healthy fats, or top up on pea protein for an extra-filling beverage. Add more or less ice or coconut milk until you reach your desired consistency, and you have yourself one truly customizable, deliciously minty shamrock shake. Enjoy!
