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!
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,

I love that you have a healthy shamrock shake! This makes me feel way better about making one. Yum!!
Oh, that’s gonna be my tomorrow’s smoothie to try, Stephanie! Thank you for the yummy!
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.
Yum, I never thought of adding mint to my green smoothies! Pinned 🙂
It is so good in chocolate smoothie, too!
Yummm, the ingredients are def different than I expected! Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for linking up at #MeetUpMonday! Hope to see you again tomorrow!! (www.OddsandEvans.com)
