Healthy Shamrock Shake
Enjoy a healthy, low-sugar, low-carb, high-protein Shamrock Shake at home -- with just 5 minutes of prep!
Servings 1 shake
- 2 cups crushed ice
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk of choice)
- 1 handful of baby spinach leaves
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract*
- Pinch of salt
- Optional topping: whipped cream, sprinkles, cherry
Place all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and puree until smooth.
Garnish with toppings, if desired.
*A little bit of peppermint extract goes a long way, so be very careful that you don't add too much! You might like to start with a drop or two (or ⅛ of a teaspoon) and then add more, to taste, if necessary.
*For purposes of calculating nutritional information, I used my favorite IdealLean Cake Batter protein powder. You can substitute with a similar vanilla or cake batter flavored protein powder, but the nutritional stats will change. As an alternative, I also like Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein powder in this recipe.
