Thick luscious whopper paleo take on the shamrock shake…quite a treat for Patrick’s Day!
This on the other hand could be by no means described as a smoothie, it’s most definitely a shake! Super thick creamy, 100% dreamy…and also made for sharing! The coconut milk makes it incredibly rich so devouring this one on your own would be no mean feat! I didn’t even attempt it, at least not in one sitting. I held on to the second half for a little experiment…
I froze it in an ice cube tray and blitz it back up in my high speed blender with a little unsweetened almond milk to get things moving…instant ice cream!
I did prefer it as a shake but had I allowed it to simply chill in the fridge I’m not sure if the coconut milk would have tried to do it’s usual separating jazz! I took the safe option so as to make sure it didn’t go to waste.
I haven’t whipped up a whole lot else with Patrick’s Day in mind but I’ve a fair few recipes that fit the bill already on the site!!!
- Matcha pancakes
- Matcha Nutola
- Matcha No Bake Nut Bars
- Mint Nanaimo Bars
- Minty Baked Matcha Iced Brownies
Eat you’re little green heart out!!!
Anyone any exciting plans for Patrick’s Day? I think at this stage it’s celebrated to a more might extent outside of Ireland!!!

Keywords: blender breakfast snack dessert gluten-free grain free low-carb paleo soy-free sugar-free vegetarian coconut milk
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 1 can of full fat coconut milk refrigerated overnight (reserve 2 tbsp of cream from the top for topping the final shake!)
- 3-4 coconut milk ice cubes (frozen full fat coconut milk)
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 2 tbsp roast cashew butter
- 1 handful of fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp (40g) raw honey or 50g Medjool dates (pitted weight) or 30-40g stevia
- 1 scoop (30g) whey protein isolate (optional)
- Cacao Nibs
- Fresh Mint
- 1-2 tbsp coconut cream that you have reserved!
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender; use the full can of coconut milk, refrigerating it overnight just ensures the shake is cold, thick and creamy!
Blend for a couple of minutes until completely smooth; it will take a little longer if using Medjool dates!
Serve topped with coconut cream (reserve 1-2 tbsp from the can or use from the top of another can!) and cacao nibs! Long spoon a total necessity!
