Did you know that a small McDonald’s Shamrock Shake has 530 calories and 73 grams of sugar in it?  Yikes!  Here’s a healthier, tasty, additive, dye and chemical-ingredient-free alternative…

Combine these ingredients in a blender:

-1 cup lowfat milk or almond milk

-1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt (for added creaminess)

-2 frozen ripe bananas

-approx. 1/2 tsp mint extract (adjust to taste)

-a small handful of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

-a large handful of fresh spinach

-up to 1 Tbsp. tsp cocoa powder (adjust to taste)

I promise, you won’t even taste the spinach!!  Happy St. Patty’s Day!
