Notes

  • For a thinner shake, add some milk. Start with 1/4 cup.
  • If you don't have a high speed blender, like a vitamix, it can take a couple of minutes to really blend up the leaves, don't worry, it will get there!
  • If you don't have mint extract, you can use peppermint, but use half the amount. 
  • For more subtle mint, leave the extract out completely.
