A simple lactose-free (but dairy-full) milkshake used Boston-based company, Beckon Ice Cream, and their mint chip pint with a little matcha for a boost of caffeine.
  • 1 pint of Beckon Ice Cream Mint Chip flavor
  • 1-1.5 cup of unsweetened almond or coconut milk (or lactose-free milk)
  • 1-3 fresh sprigs of mint leaves (or 2-3 drops of peppermint extract)
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • Handful of ice
  • 1.5 tsp of matcha (optional)
  • Handful of spinach (optional but for added nutrients and color)
  1. Combine all ingredients above besides whipped cream in a blender and use a tamper if you have a Vitamix or other high-speed blender to blend all ingredients while keeping the shake thick. Use one cup of liquid at first and increase until desired consistency. Pour into 2 glasses and top with whipped cream (optional) and extra chocolate chips. Enjoy!
