Sneaky Shamrock Shake


A semi-healthy version of the McDonald's® shamrock shake that we all love. Spinach replaces green dye. Great minty taste! Amount for ice cream and milk are estimates. I usually eyeball the whole thing. Add enough to make a thick, creamy shake!

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • ½ cup baby spinach

  • 4 hard peppermint candies

  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream


  1. Blend milk, spinach, and candies together in a blender until smooth; add ice cream, working in batches, and blend until smooth and evenly green.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute chocolate ice cream for vanilla if you want choco-mint.

A candy cane can be used instead of peppermint candies.
