With St. Patrick’s Day coming up and your kiddos wanting to feel that extra special touch without compromising their health or your sanity, here are some great ideas!

Healthy Shamrock Shake

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk of choice (we love almond or coconut)

  • 1 tsp mint extract

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ avocado, peeled

  • 2 organic medjool dates (pit removed) or ¼ cup of organic maple syrup, raw honey, or vanilla stevia to taste

  • 1 cup raw spinach, packed

  • 4 cups ice cubes

Instructions

1. In a blender combine the milk, mint extract, vanilla, avocado, dates (or maple syrup, honey or stevia), and spinach. Blend until very smooth.

2. Add the ice cubes and blend just until it forms a shake consistency. Add more milk if it’s too thick for your blender.

3. Pour the milkshake into cups and enjoy!

Make this for lunch on St. Paddy’s Day, they’ll have fun with it and not even know that’s it nutritious for them…plus you’ll be the coolest parent ever!!!
