Paleo Thick and Creamy Mint Chocolate Milkshake

Who says milkshakes are unhealthy and bad for you? Your kids will love this recipe! How could they not…

This milkshake is like treating yourself to a nice glass of chocolate and banana ice cream. It is rich, thick and creamy with a cool, refreshing hint of mint.

All you need is bananas, cacao powder, almond butter, water and a few drops of some peppermint and vanilla extract.

And if you or our kids have any nut allergies, you can simply substitute the almond butter for sunflower seed butter or coconut butter 😉

    I I make something like this, but I can’t use nut butters so I substitute an avocado and I make it with coconut milk. Very rich and creamy.

    2/3 CUP of cocao powder?! Good lord…that’s like $5 worth of cocao powder…I ended up making a bunch extra (to compensate for the huge amount of cocao) by adding a little extra water, an extra banana, some honey, then by adding a pinch of salt, a few ice cubes, and a couple tablespoons of collagen hydrolysate…breakfast! Very tasty! Thanks for the great idea!

    Girl you are a GENIUS. This is so freaking delicious. I was a little skeptical on how it would taste minty chocolatey but ohmygah this is amazing.

    Is this milkshake supposed to be mostly bitter like dark chocolate? I was hoping for something sweeter, although I didn’t use any mint extract because I didn’t have it on hand.

      Sally, using ripe bananas and vanilla extract adds sweetness to this recipe. If you like it sweeter you can also add a few drops of stevia or honey.
