St. Patrick's Day is coming up and my family is beyond excited! Anyone who knows me well knows I am sucker for any holiday!!! Growing up we created a special event out of any possible holiday from the Great Pumpkin to the Easter Chicken (bunnies don't lay eggs right?)-- there was always some sort of celebration! Today my own kids see the green theme as a cool way to celebrate, while I try to create a fun way to incorporate more vegetables and protein into their diets. One of my favorite drinks that accomplishes this is my Shamrock Shake. It's a great way to get extra nutrients after a workout, for breakfast or delicious as a snack.
Shamrock Shake Serves 1
Ingredients: 1 cup Vanilla Silk Almond Milk 1 serving Vanilla protein powder 1 frozen banana 1 TBSP Ground Flax Seed 2 Cups Spinach 1 tsp Vanilla extract 1 Cup Crushed ice ** can add 1-2 drops Stevia liquid or 1 TBSP honey for added sweetness! --Blend, Serve & Enjoy
My daughter, Kaitlyn, had a great time helping me make one before school.
Enjoy & have a wonderful weekend!
