Vegan Shamrock Shake | Recipe


Having a vegan diet during holiday months can be difficult and daunting. This recipe is to make the hardship that is St. Patrick's day a bit better. McDonald's famous Shamrock Shake was by far my favorite part of the Irish holiday. I honestly looked forward to it every year until I realized, this year I can't taste the glory that is a milkshake made up of mainly green dye.... but there is a vegan substitute for everything nowadays. Here's how to make your own Vegan Shamrock Shake.


(Serves 3-4)
What You'll Need:
1+1/4 cups Almond Milk
2 cups Vanilla Vegan Ice Cream
1/4 tsp Mint Extract (Not peppermint)
Green Food Coloring
Maraschino Cherries
Vegan Whipped Cream
Sprinkles and other festive things are AMAZING, but completely optional


What You'll Need To Do:
Blend together the almond milk (I used Silk), vanilla vegan ice cream (I used Rice Dream), mint extract, and a few drops of green food coloring.
Once it's all blended, pour in a festive glass (or not festive, I'm not judging your holiday spirit).
Top it off with some vegan whipped cream (I used Soyatoo!), a yummy cherry, and other festive goodies!
AND YOU'RE DONE! It's that easy.




Not typically healthy, but we're allowed to indulge on the holidays, right?

    1. Thanks!! I found a few non-vegan recipes and thought I'd give a vegan rendition a try. It's really a bunch of recipes I've found mixed together in order to suit the vegan ingredients.
