It's almost St. Patrick's Day! I was debating what to make this week, knowing it would have to be green, and then realized I should do a take on that yearly treat that everyone always lusts for: The McDonald's Shamrock Shake. I didn't just want to make a green smoothie and call it a day, so I tried to make get the taste and mouth feel as close and I could, and honestly, I was super happy with the result.
Feel free to garnish with a frozen cherry/berry if you've got
one, or like I did, with a mint sprig.
But honestly, you're going to be too busy drinking this to think about garnish.
Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:
This shake is pretty straight forward, and has a lot of great stuff in it from spinach to banana, but like most other blended drinks feel free to add your own twist! Hemp seeds? Sure! Protein powder? Go for it! Coconut oil? Why not? Toss the items YOU need in there, but not too much that it overwhelms the other ingredients.
