Easy Shamrock Shake Recipe
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 and my Shamrock Shake Recipe! The plan is to bring the fanciful fun of March to the counters for some test tasting bites the kids will love making and the whole family will enjoy eating (or sipping in reference to this recipe). One recipe that always makes the menu at our house this time of year includes my Shamrock Shake Recipe.
Years ago I created what we use to refer to as the ‘shamrock fake shake’. I would say it’s the ‘Fake Shake, that’s the Real Deal’ because of why I created it. I created it because they loved the idea of the McDonald’s version and I did not. Have you googled the calories on that baby? You should! I wanted an option with less calories, less fat and no food dye.
t’s a great recipe to try & you will all be surprised just how delicious this concoction is to sip. My Shamrock Shake Recipe has been a big hit for family activities and I’ve brought it on my cooking travels; where it’s equally enjoyed.
Here is the printable version of the Shamrock Shake Recipe for your convenience;
- 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* 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.

- If you are diary free swap out with your favorite dairy free alternatives depending on your dietary needs. If you can use it, coconut milk products are always creamy yummy.
