Hello and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve got a treat for you guys today: a Healthy Shamrock Shake recipe!

 I used to love the seasonal Shamrock Shake from a certain fast food restaurant.Oh my gosh – Shamrock Shakes! I’d forgotten all about those! I decided I had a new mission: create a healthy but still delicious version at home.

I set to work on the project yesterday, with a little bit of my moms help of course. The secret ingredient? Avocado!

Have you guys ever had avocado in a smoothie before?;)  Try it – avocado makes smoothies really creamy and awesome, and you can’t taste it. Adds some healthy fat to the mix, too!

The smoothie was more green in person than it looks in these photos, but if you want to make it even more green, add a small handful of spinach to the blender. You won’t be able to taste it, I promise!
