Mint Chocolate Protein Shake

Optional Add-ins


This is the blender I use to make my smoothies. It’s easy, holds the perfect amount, and can be left to keep blending while I walk away (it runs by itself). Not sponsored, I just love this!

  1. Add all ingredients in the order listed: non-dairy milk, fruit, vegan protein powder, MCT oil, vanilla + peppermint extract and ice cubes. This is the order that I’ve found to be smoothest, without any protein powder getting stuck in a clump anywhere.
  2. Depending on your daily nutritional requirements/needs, feel free to add maca powder, PB2, nut butter or more MCT oil.
  3. Close blender. Blend until smooth and no chunks remain. Enjoy immediately!

If you don’t know what vegan protein powder to use… here’s my review + guide to vegan protein powders.

Where to Buy Ingredients + Tools

  • Personal Blender: I’ve tried all kinds of personal blenders, from the kind that are super cheap, suspiciously lightweight (okay, it broke after just a few go’s), and the fancy, super-expensive/made-from-gold kind. Guess what? This one’s my favorite! It holds *just* the right amount of ingredients, is super easy to use, and auto-blends while you walk away and do something else. How cool is that?
  • Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder: If you’ve been with me since the Great Big Best Vegan Protein Powder Ranking Odyssey, then you know we BEEN thru all the plant-based protein powders and more. This brand makes the most edible, pleasing-taste vegan protein powder. This is the protein powder I used to develop today’s mint chocolate protein shake recipe. 🙂
  • Organic Peppermint Extract: My favorite peppermint extract, with a fresh, true mint flavor. Love, love, love!
