Minty Shake + Smoothie

Smoothies and Shakes are some of my favorite things to make and get creative with! You can put almost anything you want in the blender together and just drink and go! I LOVE that! With the summer heat here, it inspired us even more for something refreshing and mint was the perfect contender as the main ingredient for these drinks! First up “Minty” Shake!

“Minty” Shake

Ingredients:

  • 1 Large Banana
  • 2 Handfuls of Spinach
  • 3 Spoonfuls of  SoDelicious Coconut Mint Ice Cream
  • 2 Dates
  • 1 Splash of SoDelicious Coconut Milk
  • 2 Spoonfuls of Coconut Meat from a Young Thai Coconut
  • ½ Cup of Coconut Water from Coconut
  • 6 Large Mint Leaves

Notes:

  • The great thing about this ice cream is it is dairy free, soy free, gluten free and has no added sugar! (Not to mention it's super good!!)
  • Recipe makes 14oz.

The next recipe is for those of you who want to make the minty shake but either don’t want to have the ice cream in it, are cutting back on sugar or want something that isn’t so dessert like. This recipe could really be eaten anytime of day even morning if you’d like!

“Minty Smooth” Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 Large Banana
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 Large Soaked Date
  • 1 Generous Handful of Spinach
  • 2 Spoonfuls of Coconut Meat from a Young Thai Coconut
  • ¼ Coconut Water from Coconut
  • 3 or more (depending on how minty you like things) Large Mint Leaves
  • 3 Large Ice Cubes

Notes!

  • Recipe makes 14oz.
  • Add more Mint leaves for more minty flavor
  • You can use ½ a banana with fewer mint leaves but it will leave you with a thinner consistency.
  • If you want to use a full banana with 3-4 mint leaves you will have a thicker/ more minty smoothie!
