Kale Shamrock Shake
Shamrock shakes are available this time of the year from many places. I can see why they are popular; the combination of vanilla and mint in a shake is pretty heavenly. I used to enjoy the shakes myself when I was younger. Now that I stay away from refined sugars, dairy and artificial flavors, I make my own, especially considering how easy it is! Instead of green food coloring, my shake contains nutrient dense green kale and hempseeds for healthy omega-3 oils and extra protein. Frozen bananas loaded with potassium stand in for the ice cream, and I promise you this version of a shamrock shake is delicious, and it will leave you feeling energized naturally not by a sugar rush.
