Shamrock smoothie

When I was a child, March and St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated with a neon green shamrock shake (filled with yucky ingredients and fake colors). Now that I know better, I make my own healthier shamrock smoothies to celebrate!

Shamrock Smoothie

2 cups of fresh spinach
1/8 to 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract – depending on how minty you like it! I just use one capful.
1/2 of an avocado (optional)
1/2 of a banana-frozen or regular (optional, but makes it sweeter)
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (My favorite is this one)
8 oz Almond or coconut Milk
6 ice cubes

Happy St. Patrick’s Day,

    Wow, this version is pretty healthy! I was expecting it to be a copycat of the Shamrock Shake, but then I saw the first ingredient was spinach. It sounds like something I need to try! Thanks for joining us for Hump Day Happenings.
