If your childhood was anything like mine St. Patrick’s Day meant a pilgrimage to McDonald’s for their annual offering of Shamrock Shakes. Now that we know McDonald’s is hazardous to our health does that mean no more minty green drinks? Heck no!
If the heartstrings of tradition are still pulling for you to drive toward the golden arches, check out my healthy superfood version of this cult classic.
Healthy Superfood Shamrock Shake
1 c. almond milk or favorite milk alternative
2 scoops chocolate mint superfood powder, like Raw Beauty from Hum Nutrition
2 T almond butter or sunflower seed butter
1 handful cashews, soaked overnight
Handful mint leaves
1/2 t peppermint extract
1/4 t spirulina
2 t matcha powder
1 T raw cacao nibs
1 t honey (optional)
handful of ice
Blend, baby, blend!
This superfood shake is loaded with antioxidants so you can feel good – wherever St. Patty’s Day takes you. Cheers!
