A shamrock shake that's green from real greens instead of artificial green food coloring. Sweetened with stevia and full of vanilla and mint flavors, this frosty drink is less than 100 calories per serving.
Adapted from healthyslowcooking.com
cup unsweetened nondairy milk (mixed nut or coconut recommended)
cup kale or other greens
teaspoon vanilla extract
teaspoon mint extract
teaspoon xanthan gum or ¼ teaspoon pectin
cup ice, crushed is best
Add everything except for the xanthan gum (or pectin) and the ice to a blender. Blend until the greens are completely liquid. Add in the xanthan gum or pectin and blend for a few seconds to mix in. This is what will keep the ice from separating from the liquid and holds it all together. Pour in the ice and blend until frosty and smooth. Feel good that you're giving your family something they are asking for, but is more nutritious and tastes better than the original too!
