Dairy-Free Mint Chocolate Chip Shake with Hemp Protein


by | Read time: 1 minute

Mint chocolate chip ice cream would be going too far. One scoop alone has more calories than you’d like to waste on food that will ultimately upset your stomach. But this mint chocolate chip shake does your body (and your taste buds) good. With all the sweetness and creaminess you’d expect from ice cream, this slurpable dessert packs in greens, non-dairy coconut milk, avocado and protein powder.
