|Make this green spirited shake & your liver will make a "Thank You" card!|
Back in the Middle Ages, those Shamrock Shakes from the Who Shall Not Be Named fast food joint were a treat every year. My veganism started last January and unfortunately a green shake didn't get created.
So of course, I felt inclined to make that up today and include an adored to death ingredient- avocado. It's green, deliciously versatile, and filled with many good vitamins and minerals.
With lime and avocado in this blender recipe, guacamole appeared to be on the horizon- after all that is pretty green too. The lime just adds a citrus twist to a creamy shake that features chocolate chips and agave nectar for sweetness. As much as I love using the coconut milk in the tetra packs, it's best to go for the canned version- makes for a thick, richer shake.
The taste was just terrific!
