Whip It Up Wednesday

Shamrocks and Gold Smoothie

The Shamrock Shake is a seasonal green mint-flavored milkshake dessert sold at some restaurants during March to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the US, Canada, and Ireland. The Shamrock Shake was first introduced in 1970. This year in honor of the holiday, I encourage you to try a healthier smoothie that you don’t have to drink in moderation and it takes less than five minutes to make.

NOTE: add spinach to your smoothie to receive all the benefits such as a generous amount of fiber, folate, calcium, and vitamins A, C, and K; high antioxidants and are proven to prevent oxidative damage and promoting eye health and protection from damaging UV light.
