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
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.
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.
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.
