Vegan Copycat Shamrock Shake

  • Author: Liz Madsen
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 40 oz 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Sweet, minty, and delicious, this Copycat Vegan Shamrock Shake is a cool treat made from just 3 ingredients. This healthy vegan mint milkshake is great any time of the day when you need a pick-me-up.


Units Scale
  • 4 Frozen Bananas (about 4 cups) (see note 1 for substitutions)
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk (or more, as needed to blend)
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Mint Leaves (or a few drops of mint extract)


  1. Note About Yield: This recipe makes enough for 2-3 large glasses or several small cups. The bananas turn brown over time, which is why I recommend serving immediately and only making as much as you’ll need. If you’re serving one person, use 1 to 1 ½ frozen bananas, ½ to 1 cup of non-dairy milk, and a small handful of mint leaves.
  2. Blend: Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth and creamy! If you feel it’s not minty enough, add more mint. If it’s too minty, you could add a little bit more non-dairy milk and even a few more chunks of frozen banana if needed. If you’d like it sweeter, you can add a splash of maple syrup or agave and blend briefly.
  3. Serve: Serve your vegan shamrock shakes immediately. If you’d like, add a little vegan whipped cream and maybe even a cherry on top. You could even serve them with fancy straws. 


  • Note 1: If you’re allergic to bananas, you’ll need to figure out a replacement. It’s not super healthy, but vegan vanilla ice cream would work well here. Another option you have is to use white beans and your favorite sweetener. It won’t be cold, so you’ll need to add ice. I’ve also seen people use frozen cauliflower and sweetener like agave or maple syrup, but haven’t personally tried it. And frozen mango or pineapple will work great, but they will change the flavor.
  • Note 2: This recipe calls for sweet mint leaves (what you’ll find in most grocery stores in the fresh produce section). The ½ cup this recipe calls for might be too much for some people and not enough for others! Personally I add even more. The more leaves you add, the greener it will be. But don’t overdo it. If you’re worried, start with ¼ cup, blend, and taste. Add more to taste.
  • Note 3: Due to how quickly bananas oxidize and turn brown, I actually do not recommend storing this recipe for later. See my note on yield in Step 1 of the recipe and only make as much as you’d like to consume immediately.
