I honor of the upcoming holiday try this healthy take on McDonald’s Shamrock Shake via Cupcakes & Kale Chips blog. Adding greens to smoothies works nutritional wonders for your body. They improve blood circulation, help with digestion, boost your energy, strengthen your immune system and much more. Don’t be disturbed by the green color, it still tastes great!
•1 frozen, ripe banana
•1 c almond or soy milk
•½ c kale (or other dark, leafy green of your choice)
•½ t vanilla extract
•¼ t mint extract
•ice cubes – I used 4 regular-sized ones. This was probably about ¾ c.
Adjust accordingly based on the size of your ice cubes and how icy you want it.
