Well its shamrock shake time at McDonalds. I never eat at McDonalds, but I can’t help but to love the shamrock shake. I usually get one a year just to get a taste of it but this year I decided to try to make my own.
Sure there are a million recipes online and I suppose I could have just followed one of those, but a lot of them had ingredients that I just wasn’t into. I don’t want to drink an avocado, and I cannot stand bananas, and pistachio pudding? was in one of them. Maybe there is pistachio in the original but all I taste is a sweet mint, so I went with that.
I drink a Vega One shake for breakfast every morning and usually I just mix peanut butter with it, but after about a year it can get a little boring so now I am trying to switch it up.
All you need for my version of the shamrock shake is:
- 1 cup of your preferred milk (I liked cashew milk the best)
- 1 scoop Vega One French Vanilla Nutritional Shake (or your favorite protein powder)
- 1/4-1/2 tsp Mint extract
- 1/2 tsp Sunfood Vanilla Powder(or vanilla extract)
- 1 tbsp Agave Nectar
- small handful of spinach
- 3 or 4 ice cubes
I used my Ninja Pulse Blender for this and it made it perfect. You can of course adjust these measurements to taste this was just how I liked it. The Vega One and spinach will turn your shake green by itself, not neon green like at McDonalds, but do we really need that? No way
