Manic Monday ~ Drink a Shamrock Shake

It’s that time of year to wear green and eat some green.... I’m not just talking veggie style greens, I’m talking about a minty shake.

Treat yourself with this tasty treat from Chocolate Covered Katie (my favorite healthy alternative recipe blog):

“A small McDonalds’s Shamrock Shake will set you back 460 calories and 64 grams of sugar! Do your health a favor, and make your own delicious and healthy shamrock shake at home.

The popular McDonalds Shamrock Shakes are back again.

And although they might taste good for the few minutes they last, even the smallest-sized milkshake is full of empty calories and sugar, chemicals, additives, and potentially dangerous food dyes. So here is a recipe for how to make your own healthy shamrock shake.

While I have always believed in indulging in some unhealthy food every once in a while is fine, I’ve also never been big on moderation… if I enjoy something, I want it all the time! With these healthy shamrock shakes, you don’t have to drink them in moderation. The recipe takes less than five minutes to make, uses natural ingredients to get that green hue, and it has NO refined sugar whatsoever.

Think of how much sugar you’re saving by drinking ZERO grams of refined sugar instead of 64… This healthy shamrock shake recipe is also way under 460 calories!

Blend these ingredients:

☘️2/3 cup milk of choice

☘️1/3 cup canned coconut milk, creamer, or additional milk of choice
