Shamrock Smoothie


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!


Shamrock Smoothie 

1/2 cup organic vanilla frozen yogurt or organic coconut milk ice cream

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!
