Avocado – make sure you are using a soft, ripe avocado with no black spot on the skin to avoid bitterness

Canned coconut cream – this is a keto vegan Shamrock Shake so I am using dairy-free coconut cream. However, heavy cream will work too!
Spinach – yes, there is an extra green hidden in this keto shake. I should probably rename this recipe avocado spinach smoothie then. But, rest assured, the recipe works without spinach if you are not sure about that. This only adds a boost of green color and can totally be skipped.
Peppermint extract – for the classic minty flavor of a real Shamrock Shake recipe
Ice cubes – this is what makes the difference between an avocado spinach smoothie and a healthy avocado milkshake! The ice cubes combined with ripe avocado mimic the ice cream usually used in milkshake. Now, you know why this recipe is called healthy Shamrock Shake right?

How to serve your shamrock shake ?
A classic shamrock shake recipe includes whipped cream on top and a glazed cherry. Obvisouly, those two are sugar loaded and not keto friendly. My option is to use unsweetened whipped coconut cream using the cream from the top of a can of coconut cream. Otherwise unsweetened whipped cream works too if you eat airy. Finally, the cherry on top is replaced by raspberry, a low sugar keto-friendly fruits for a touch a red color. Bonus, if you have lovely shake glasses like this one below, go for it! It will look even closer to a real shamrock shake !
