Have that St. Patrick’s Day favorite milkshake the healthy way, with all the mint flavor and creamy texture, but none of the guilt with my Shamrock Shake Green Smoothie!
1 frozen, really ripe banana
1 cup milk of choice
½ cup plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese
½ cup baby spinach, kale or other dark, leafy green of your choice)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon mint extract
ice cubes - I used 4 regular-sized ones. This was probably about ¾ cup. Adjust accordingly based on the size of your ice cubes and how icy you want it.
Optional - you can add a bit of sugar, honey, stevia, etc., if needed, depending on how ripe and sweet your banana is
Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass to serve.
