Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Milkshare

This shake was inspired by my friend Jessica Espinoza and 20 Dishes: Junk Food Made Real: Copycat Shamrock Shake® :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free

When I saw her email come through on Friday, (totally appropriate for St. Patrick's Day, I might add), I thought, “Mmm, that looks so good! I want to try that!” Well, as you know, I have a hard time following a recipe perfectly plus I love to improvise, so mine is slightly different, plus it includes chocolate “chips”!

I recently became an affiliate for Dr. Axe's Bone Broth Protein, and they sent me a sample of the Bone Broth Collagen. I have to say I was a teensy bit apprehensive about using it, as it has a flavor to it, similar to broth. However, I could not detect it in this shake and in fact, I think it added a “malt” flavor. I love the old-fashioned malt powder that we used to put in shakes and malts when I was a kid. I'm kind of excited to think I can have that again. I'll let you know if I try another one.

Serves 2.

  1. Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate is pure cacao and chocolate is allowed on GAPS, in case you are wondering.
  2. If you have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix you use larger chunks of the chocolate squares; otherwise, you can use a grater to shave the squares into small pieces, or use a sharp knife to shave off bits.
  3. Place everything in the blender and mix until smooth.
