Have a Guilt Free St Pattys on Me

Did you know Shamrock Shakes at McDonalds contain 530 calories, 73g sugar and 86g carbohydrates?!?!??! It’s crazy! You could be drinking 5-6 Irish beers on St. Patty’s for what that’s worth! Try my new and improved Shamrock Green Smoothie below and see how it compares – cutting empty calories and even gaining some valuable nutrition!

Shamrock Shake hold the Diabetes Recipe

1 frozen banana

1/4-1/2 frozen avocado (depending on size)

2 handfuls spinach and kale mixed greens

1 cup ice

3/4 cup Tru Moo Vanilla Mint Milk

1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (or frozen Greek yogurt)

~1/2 tsp mint extract

2tbsp maple syrup or honey

Topped mine with one Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Mint Patty
