Mock Shamrock Shake
When you can no longer drink the real thing, and I know I can't, try this good low-carb alternative. Good as a fat fast meal too.
|3 Oz.||Avocado, ripe|
|1 Cup||Almond Milk, unsweetened|
|16 drops||Liquid Sucralose|
|2 drops||Oil of Peppermint|
|6 Lg.||Ice cubes|
Dice avocado and put in a blender. (Make sure it's ripe. Under ripe avocados will add a slight bitterness) Add almond milk, liquid sucralose (or your favorite sweetener) and peppermint oil. I use peppermint oil because it's what I have on hand. (You could also try peppermint extract, I'd try 1/4 tsp to start with and add more to taste if you need to. DaVinci Syrups also makes a nice sugar-free peppermint syrup. A few squirts of that would replace both the peppermint and sweetener.)
Blend the ingredients until smooth. Then add the ice cubes and blend until smooth and frosty.
I find it's plenty green the way it is, but you can add a drop of green food coloring if you want it greener.
