Healthy Shamrock Smoothie

Healthy Shamrock Smoothie

This healthy shamrock milkshake has a sweet creamy base so you’d never guess it’s high protein and low sugar!

First up, smoothies totally count as a one dish meal right?  Well, this one definitely does and if anyone disagrees I’m sorry.  I’d like to say I promise they won’t become a regular thing on one dish Monday, but in July when it’s 120 out I typically eat smoothies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When it’s 120 outside, I don’t make promises about anything and I don’t apologize for my erratic behavior when it’s so hot I can’t think straight.  Luckily it’s been in the low 70’s all week so 120 is still just a distant threat.

Second, I must say, thank you to McDonald’s for running your ad for the Shamrock Shake over and over and over and over again until I had to make my own version, better than yours!  The Shamrock Shake used to be the one thing I still went through the drive thru for every single year, like a moth drawn to a flame my car would drive there automatically.  No matter how hard I tried at home, how many recipes I went through, I couldn’t get it right at home.  I tried so many Pinterest versions, some of them were better than others.  Over and over again I was disappointed.  Either the serving size was appropriate for a mouse, ingredients included food dye, the texture was not like a milkshake, or it just didn’t taste like the real thing.  Disappointment after disappointment leading me to the drive thru to enjoy my beloved Shamrock Shake.  This year, all that has changed, I figured out the sweet creamy super secret ingredient that can make a healthy shake taste like my beloved chemical loaded version.
