Looking for Grinch Food Ideas? Check out this shake! #Grinch #party #milkshake

Looking for Grinch food ideas?  If the answer was yes, then you’re going to want to check out my Grinch-ified fake shake.  If the answer is no, then it’s a bonus, because you’re still going to want to check out my Grinch-ified fake shake.  Why?  It’s refreshingly delish.

When my kids were young the holiday movie line up was a top priority.  Holiday snacks were equally a top priority. 

In fact, there were a couple of years that my youngest had friends over to watch the movie The Grinch.  We would make grinch inspired food and I would give the girls Grinch inspired hair from Who-ville for the the show. Oh the memories.  I’d give anything to pop back to those magical moments in time.

My Grinch-ified fake shake is a regular holiday serve in my household.  Don’t get me wrong, we love our treats.  At the same time, we are attempting balance in the holidays and strive to add in a few alternatives.  Grinch-ified Fake Shakes was one alternative.  Yes, yes…I know when you read the ingredients you may turn a nose up to the fact that spinach is in the ingredient list, but I can promise you one thing.  YOU WON’T TASTE IT once all of the ingredients have been blended together.

A Recipe to Add to Grinch Food Ideas!

Grinch-ified 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 honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 – 4 fresh mint leaves, small

Add the baby leaf spinach, the frozen yogurt, the milk, honey, vanilla extract and mint leaves into the blender and blend thoroughly before serving.

Mint Alternative: If you don’t the earthy taste of fresh mint, simply omit it and replace it with one drop of mint or peppermint extract.  My daughter prefers the extract over mint leaves and I prefer the mint leaves over the extracts; oh well!

Dairy Allergy Concerns?  Consider swapping the frozen yogurt and milk with dairy free products depending on your dietary needs.

P.S.  Here’s an old video we made a few years back with this recipe (sadly the giveaway is all done, but it was fun while it lasted).
