A lot of great things happen in March. It starts getting warmer, there’s St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Break. And… Shamrock Shakes.

It’s a creamy, minty, refreshing, and delicious treat. But when you look at a large 22-ounce Shamrock Shake, it contains 820 calories, 23 grams of fat and 115 grams of sugar. So, next time you feel that spring fever coming over you and you crave that luscious shake, try this healthier homemade version instead!


  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ tsp peppermint/mint extract
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • ¼ frozen spinach (to get that green color!)


Simple. Blend it all up in blender till smooth and enjoy!
