Healthy Shamrock Shake with Protein
Servings: 2
Prep time: 15

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and sip on this brilliant green smoothie with a hint of mint! This Healthy Shamrock Shake is a great way to eat your greens when a regular meal may not feel like something you can manage. You can add more agave if you prefer a sweeter taste, but remember, agave nectar is twice as sweet as regular table sugar so go gently.

Preparation

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency.

Ann's Tips and Tricks

If you buy pre-washed bagged spinach, if you are using it raw always wash it again to be on the safe side. If your immune is compromised, add a little vinegar to the wash water. Use whichever protein powder suits your needs, whether whey, egg, soy – there are so many – but try to buy the best quality you can.
