Shamrock Smoothie {Healthy Recipe} St Patrick’s Day

shamrock smoothie st patrick's day healthy recipe


It’s that time of year again and the Shamrock Shakes at McDonald’s are back on the menu. I’m a total sucker for that minty goodness but the amount of calories and ….stuff….. in them make me back away each time. That being said, I decided to create my own healthy version of the shamrock shake – and here it is – the Shamrock Smoothie! All the great deliciousness but with all healthy ingredients! It makes a great breakfast smoothie or you can be like me and enjoy it anytime of the day 🙂

This recipe makes 1 large smoothie (2 kid sized smoothies) so if you need more just double or triple the recipe. Enjoy!
