Long ago (1970 to be exact), McDonald’s chose to pay its respect to St. Patrick banishing the snakes from Ireland with its Shamrock Shake. Boasting 530 calories, 15 g of fat and a whopping 73 g of sugar the green “milkshake” is back on tap. Though I may partake in McDonald’s (or Burger King) maybe once every 16 months, my mouth still waters longingly for a Shamrock Shake each year. I can’t recall the last time I had one, but I know I want one right now! I was a McDonald’s kid for sure and I recall ordering chocolate shakes, to dip my fries in. Long live the minty shamrock shake (and down with fast food!).
Skinny Shamrock Shake
1 frozen banana
1 C light coconut milk
5 drops green food coloring
1/4 tsp mint or peppermint extract
3-5 spinach leaves
2 TBSP honey
1 TBSP mini chocolate chips
In a blender, mix together all ingredients except chocolate chips. If consistency is too thick, add a splash of water or more coconut milk. If too thin, add a couple ice cubes.
Pour into a glass and serve with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips.
