Shamrock... Smoothie?

8:56 PM

So, I’ve never had a Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s.

*horrified gasps*

I know, I know.... I don’t know how I’ve managed it, but it’s just never happened.

I have, however, been unable to miss all of the hype surrounding them. I hear they’re delicious, and the pretty green color is all-too appealing.

And so, in honor of St. Patrick’s day, I made a green smoothie. A little healthier, I’m sure, than a shake from McDonald’s. 

Literally the easiest thing to make, and preeetty tasty.

Green mint smoothie 
  • 1-2 frozen bananas
  • Almond milk (I used the hint of honey variety!)
  • 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract
  • A small handful of raw spinach leaves
  • Optional: whipped cream + gold sprinkles
1. Whirl the bananas up in a blender until they’re getting creamy, adding milk as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

2. Once the consistency is about how you want it, add in the mint extract + the spinach leaves, and blend again until the spinach is ground into fine pieces.

3. Pour into a cup + add a little whipped cream on top for fun, and some gold sprinkles for the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!
