Anyone else love those delicious green milk shakes that come out at McDonald’s every spring? I LOVE them and decided it would be fun to make a healthier version at home that the kids can help with. Not only were they CHEAP, they turned out amazing and we didn’t use any food coloring.
So How did we make them?
Our Shamrock Shakes were quick, easy, cheap, DAIRY free AND had veggies. That is right, VEGGIES! The kids didn’t even mind.
We used dairy free ice cream (easily found at any grocery store), unsweetened almond milk, mint extract and last, but not least, spinach. The spinach easily turned our Shamrock Shakes green!
Cool, right? No food coloring.
I have always just kind of dumped the ingredients in the blended and pressed go. No matter the amounts, the Shamrock Shakes turn out really yummy, but since this is a blog, I took the time to measure out how much I added. Please note, at any time, you can add more or less of any ingredient, this is a hard recipe to ruin!
