Everyone’s looking to slurp up something mint-chocolatey in March, a month when we’re all Irish! So I whipped up this goodie for St. Paddy’s Day. Sure, there are versions you can grab quickly at fast-food restaurants and coffee shops, but they’re loaded with sugar and calories. This spin is rich, thick and delicious, and features wholesome ingredients. In fact, this is a beneficial bevvy you can enjoy year-round.

Other benefits of this sweet sip: it’s non-dairy for those who must avoid cow’s milk. It takes just five ingredients and a few minutes to put together. The blended beverage is magically delicious without a drop of added sugar.  

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 servings

• 2 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen
• ¼ cup cocoa powder
• ½ to ¾ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
• 1 drop mint extract (it’s very strong)
• ½ tsp vanilla extract
•½ cup ice cubes


Optional toppers:
Aerated whipped cream, mint leaves, cocoa powder


Break the frozen bananas into large pieces. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and frothy. Add a splash of extra milk if you have trouble blending. Pour into glasses and garnish with optional toppings.

A serving is 1 heaping cup.
