Go green on St. Patrick’s day!
What’s St. Patrick’s Day without a shamrock shake? But please, do not stop at a Mickey D’s and purchase one. If you do, then that 12 oz. (provided you get the smallest size) will set you back 530 calories and 73 grams of sugar!!!! No joke – check the nutritional information out at their website. Seventy-three grams of sugar!
Here’s what we will be drinking on St. Patrick’s Day! A high protein green smoothie!
- 1 cup of unsweetened rice milk
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup kale
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1 small apple or 1/2 large apple
- 1 tsp mint leaves
- - juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 scoop protein powder
- Place everything except ice into a blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice cubes, a few at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
