Make Your Own Healthy Vegan Shake!

Serves: 1 pax Ready In: 5 mins


  • 1 very ripe, frozen, medium to large banana, broken into chunks

  • 1 ounce avocado (about ¼ of a medium avocado)

  • 1 to 2 romaine lettuce leaves or a handful of baby spinach

  • ½ cup unsweetened rice milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk beverage (use homemade or lite coconut milk for paleo)

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract, to taste

  • Sweetener to taste

Step By Step Guide

Step 1

Add the banana, avocado, lettuce, milk beverage or coconut milk, vanilla and ⅛ teaspoon peppermint extract to your blender, so that the avocado and lettuce are closest to the blades and the frozen banana is furthest from the blades.

Step 2

Blend about 1 minute or until it is nice and smooth. If it gets too thick to blend, add a little more milk alternative to get things moving.

Step 3

Taste test and add more peppermint extract and sweetener, to taste, if desired. Pour into one large glass and enjoy with a spoon or straw.
