Healthy Shamrock Shake Recipe


What is a Shamrock Shake?

A shamrock shake is a popular drink this time of year! People count down the days until the vibrant green milkshakes come out at the fast food joints.

This delicious drink is a peppermint flavored milkshake made with vanilla soft served ice cream, topped with whipped cream and a cherry. A festive option in March to celebrate spring or on St. Patrick’s day!

After trying our nutrient-dense shamrock shake, we bet you opt to make your own rather than buying them out. They are ultra creamy, minty smoothie is so healthy, you can enjoy it as dessert OR breakfast.

How to make

Step 1

We use frozen bananas and spinach in our peppermint green smoothies because it makes them super thick and makes it easier to always have these things on hand.

Add all the ingredients into a blender.

Step 2

Process the ingredients until the smoothie is super smooth. If necessary, thin out with more coconut milk or a splash or almond milk.

Step 3

Top with a homemade whipped cream, sweetened with ZenSweet Monk Fruit Sweetener, or with whipped coconut cream.
