Homemade Shamrock Shake Ingredients

I love the creamy, thick texture of this healthy shake. Just like a good shake should be! It really is amazing how that comes from just a few ingredients:

I’m sure you could take those base ingredients and get creative with other shamrock shake flavors too!

To keep this shamrock shake recipe low carb, sweeten it to your liking with my favorite stevia (this one doesn’t leave a nasty aftertaste)… but note that it is very sweet so you don’t need much!

Adding Mint

I estimate that I use about 3/4 to 1 cup of mint leaves, but it is really up to you how much to use. It all depends on how much you want your shake to taste like mint.

Fresh mint is usually in the produce section of most grocery stores or you can grow a plant at home. My grocery store was out of just the leaves, so I ended up taking home a little plant. We’ll see how long I can keep it alive though!

Final Thoughts

Now, does this Shamrock Shake taste just like the less healthy versions? I wouldn’t go that far. Haha. But this shake is creamy, green, and minty.

One of my kids says it tastes pretty good and reminds her of ice cream. Some of my other kids don’t like mint in the first place, so their review doesn’t count. 😉

All in all, this is definitely a fun, easy option for a healthy and naturally green recipe! Would be nice and refreshing on a hot summer day too.

Want to take your healthy Shamrock Shake up a notch? Use dark chocolate shavings as a garnish! Yum!
