I must confess that I have loved Shamrock shakes for as long as I can remember, but I haven’t had one in a long time because I am determined that I need to want for me what I want for my daughter...healthy food. A shamrock shake (from a fast food restaurant) contains a lot of artificial ingredients, refined sugars and dyes that I want to avoid. So for those of you resisting the once a year temptation I have a great recipe for you just in time for St. Patty’s Day! It doesn’t taste exactly like a shamrock shake but it is delicious and light on the guilt. Enjoy!
1/4 of a ripe avocado
1 tbsp FINELY chopped fresh mint
1 tbsp chopped fresh spinach
Milk for thinning ( I used coconut milk)
Organic Chocolate Chips (optional) for topping
Blend ingredients together in a blender until a shake/ smoothie consistency is reached. Top with chocolate chips if desired!
