Vegan Shamrock Shake

Vegan Shamrock Shake

Have you ever met someone who doesn’t love the Shamrock Shake?  Even non-mint lovers are somehow strangely drawn to it.  I think this is because, much like the Starbucks red cups, the Shamrock Shake ushers in a new season.  It is a beacon of hope, promising that Spring is coming soon.

After reading this article about what is in the McDonald’s shamrock shake, I was definitely motivated to change it!  For an extra challenge, I decided to keep it vegan, using Almond milk and Almond ice “cream.”  The green color comes only from fresh spinach (you won’t taste it).

This took a few attempts to get it right, and I have to say, it turned out way better than I expected!  You would never know this is not ice cream.  Charlotte and I devoured these for breakfast, but they would also make a great dessert or snack.  Happy early St. Patrick’s Day!
