A Vegan So Delicious Mint Chocolate Banana Milkshake

A cool, minty dessert with a splash of chocolate & banana goodness.
Organic mint leaves were on sale at the grocery and that inspired an idea.
I enjoy the limited edition holiday flavor that So Delicious puts out- Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk which has a strong peppermint accent coordinating well with the combined sweetness of chocolate and coconut milk.
Why not make a refreshing little pick me up dessert using those taste bud profiles?
With an added banana paying homage to vegan ice cream making and superbly thickening up the milkshake, this cool treat is a perfect way to settle the nerves while checking lists twice, planning dinner menus, wrapping gifts, and all that other holiday madness.
This shake tastes like an Andes mint with a banana twist!

Vegan So Delicious Mint Chocolate Banana Milkshake

1 cup vegan vanilla ice cream (I used Trader Joe's Soy Creamy Vanilla)
1/2 cup So Delicious Special Edition Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk
1 ripened banana
1/2 teaspoon mint flavor (add more if desired)
sprinkle of ginger (optional)
mint leaf for garnish (optional)

Leave ice cream out to soften for a bit.
Scoop it out into a blender and mix with the coconut milk, banana, and mint flavoring.
Pour into cup or mug and sprinkle with ginger.
Add the mint leaf garnish.

The pinch of ginger spiced it up! In a good way.
