Shamrock Shake Green Smoothie
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.
