Luck of the Irish Shake, Shamrock Inspired
Creamy, minty and packed full of healthy goodness…just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
I know many of you look forward to the green shake you can get from a drive-thru window this time of year. I used to like it, too. Honestly, I kinda miss it and I sometimes wish I could grab something quick while on the go. I’ve come up with a version that’s more in line with how I eat now. While not available at a drive-thru anywhere near me, it’s very quick and easy to make. It’s dairy-free and only six ingredients. I hope it brings you lots of luck!
- 2 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 Avocado
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or other non-dairy milk
- 1 cup spinach
- ½ cup ice cubes (or more, add to desired consistency)
- ½ t. peppermint extract or 1 T. fresh mint leaves
- Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. This makes a very thick shake. If you would like a thinner consistency, add more ice cubes just a few at a time.
