Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I’m not Irish (that I know of), but I definitely have some fun memories of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day growing up.  Whether it be making a leprechaun trap at school or eating corned beef and cabbage at home, it’s fun to have a holiday to celebrate however you like.  I’m thinking I need to try my own adaptation of Skinny Taste’s Shamrock Shake today.  Anyone else with me? 🙂


3/4 cup milk (whatever kind you like)
3/4 cup vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream
1 T sugar, or a few drops of Stevia
1/4 tsp. mint extract – I may just use a few drops of Peppermint extract. Be careful if you do – it’s strong!
1 cup crushed ice
Green food coloring, optional – she uses avocado, but I’m not afraid of food coloring.


Put all the ingredients into the blender.  Blend for 3-4 minutes until the mixture if thick and icy.  Pour into two glasses (or one big one!) and serve with a thick straw.  Enjoy!
