Shamrock Shakes all around with this Healthy Alternative

Shamrock shake

What’s cooking in March?

A whole lot of tasty, fun yum! This month I’m thinking about everything green, lucky leprechauns & St. Patrick’s Day. The plan is to bring the fanciful fun of March to the counters for some test tasting bites the kids will love making & the whole family will enjoy eating. One recipe that always makes the menu at our house this month includes our Shamrock Fake Shakes.

Years ago I created a shamrock fake shake recipe for my kids that’s actually the ‘Real Deal’. It’s a great recipe to try & you will all be surprised just how delicious this concoction is to sip…

Shamrock Fake Shake by Jodie Fitz

2 cups fresh baby leaf spinach (natural color)
2 cups fat-free frozen yogurt
1 1/2 cups low-fat or fat-free milk
1 tablespoon Price Chopper honey
1 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
2 – 4 fresh mint leaves* or a drop of mint extract

Put all of the ingredients into the blender, blend & serve.

*Fresh mint leaves can be found in the produce aisle of most grocery stores. The number of mint leaves used depends on the size; 2 medium vs. 4 small. Or, one drop of mint extract can be a substitute for the fresh mint leaves.

This recipe makes approximate four 8 oz. servings.
