Happy St Patrick’s Day! Copycat Shamrock Shake!

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today I have a Copycat Shamrock Shake recipe for you. You know the shake that I’m talking about, the big green one from McDonalds that everyone can’t seem to get enough of!? Well I decided to make my own healthier version of it. I actually have to admit something, I’ve never had the real one from McDonalds….I know I know some will think that is crazy. But it just never seemed like something I had to have, unlike the fall favorite at starbucks, the Pumpkin Spice latte. A lot of the recipes out there that I found used Greenberry shakeology. First off, I don’t have any of the greenberry on hand and second I feel like it is a flavor that isn’t quite as popular as your vanilla is. Plus you can always sub just plain ol’ vanilla protein powder in for shakeology if in a pinch. Granted you won’t be getting near the amount of awesome dense nutrition as you would with Shakeology but it is still better than the junk shake you would get at McDonalds. Okay here is the recipe!
