Dairy Free Sugar Free Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Shake

Cacao nibs and mint blend together with nondairy vanilla ice cream to create a healthier version of the mint chocolate chip shake. By choosing sugar-free ice cream like So Delicious' Coconut-Milk Vanilla you cut out the dairy and sugar. This shake is creamy, sweet, and crunchy from the cacao nibs. This shake makes for a great dessert option or an after workout recovery shake by blending in your favorite plant-based protein powder.
