Peppermint Milkshake

Let’s toast St. Patrick’s Day with a green smoothie Peppermint Milkshake that will properly fuel your body, taste delicious, and…. is completely eco-friendly! This wonderful peppermint milkshake smoothie recipe will give your body a reason to rejoice. I’m talking about all of your favorite shamrock shake flavors, mixed to perfection with body-fueling nutrients.


The ice cream and whipped cream in a peppermint milkshake are usually dairy-based. If it’s created using chocolate, it’ll also have dairy in it. My version is dairy-free because I find that my stomach feels better when I don’t eat dairy. And, let’s face it, if I can enjoy a sumptuous pleasure while still feeling fantastic, I’m all in.

Peppermint Milkshake: How To Make ThemMaking milkshake. Hand of person pouring milk into mixer to make delicious healthy cocktail stock photos

  • This is a four-ingredient dish that is really easy to make.
  • Simply fill your blender jug halfway with non-dairy milk (we used coconut milk), then add peppermint extract and a few drops of green food coloring.
  • After that, mix in some vegan vanilla ice cream until smooth.
  • Pour into two tall glasses and serve immediately or garnish with vegan whipped cream and green sanding sugar for a special touch!

Expert Tips

  • In this shake, you can use any non-dairy milk you choose. We’ve made it with coconut milk and soy milk, but any milk will do; oat milk and cashew milk are two excellent alternatives.
  • We used 1/4 tsp of green food coloring in our yogurt recipe to achieve the gorgeous green color.
  • You can buy store-bought vegan ice cream or make your own vegan ice cream at home.
  • The use of whipped cream is absolutely optional. If you don’t want to use it, you can get the same effect with any vegan whipped cream.

  • tsp peppermint extract
  • ¼ tsp green food coloring
  • 3-4 cups vanilla ice cream vegan

  • Add the coconut milk to the blender jug along with the peppermint extract and green food coloring.
  • Add in the ice cream and blend until smooth.
  • Pour out into two tall glasses and either serve right away or top with vegan whipped cream and green sanding sugar.
  • Serve immediately.


  • We used full-fat canned coconut milk in this recipe, but we also tries it with soy milk, which worked well. Any non-dairy milk should suffice in this recipe. Oat milk and cashew milk are two possibilities that come to mind.
  • Simply put 1/4 cup white granulated sugar in a jar with a cover to manufacture your own green sanding sugar. Shake the jar with a drop or two of green food coloring until all of the sugar is green.
