Mint Chocolate Chip Shake

i am cool

This mint chocolate chip shake is inspired by Cafe Gratitude’s “I Am Cool” shake. While in Oakland last month, my sister-in-law took me to get one, and I knew then it would be a recipe I had to recreate. It was just too good not to and a total throwback to my pre-vegan days when I could easily and singlehandedly eat a carton of mint chocolate chip ice cream . This one is a spinoff from the ingredients used in the CG original, but it’s still vegan, easy to make, with minty chocolate-y deliciousness.



  • I large frozen banana
  • 1/3 can coconut milk
  • 1 C almond milk
  • 3-4 TBS chia seeds
  • Several sprigs fresh mint (add to achieve desired minty-ness)
  • Pinch of himalayan sea salt
  • Ice cubes
  • Raw cacao nibs

Combine all ingredients except for the cacao nibs in a high speed blender and blend until desired consistency is reach. Add cacao nibs and blend for a few seconds longer.

*I usually don’t follow recipes, so play around with the ingredient amounts until you’ve reached a flavor that works for you*
