Feeling LUCKY??

With St Patrick’s Day around the corner, I’ve been craving a Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s but never ordered one because the calories always scared me away!  But after browsing Pinterest, I found a recipe that seemed healthy with ingredients that I liked and had in my fridge and freezer already =)  If you’re craving something minty and sweet, this recipe took 5 minutes to make and is only 238 calories vs 540 calories from McD’s!


Makes one serving:

1 medium banana (frozen tastes better)

1/2 cup coconut milk, light, unsweetened

1/2 cup greek yogurt, plain

1 or 2 Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies

2 drops mint extract

3 drops green food coloring (for a fun green color)


Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.  Then add some fat free whip cream and sprinkles!

Since I had so much fun dipping pretzels in white chocolate for Valentine’s Day, I decided to create the same thing for St Patrick’s Day.  This time I was better prepared and went to Moskatel’s in DTLA and chose a variety of green chocolates to melt. I also picked up some fun green sprinkles and topped everything with it since sprinkles make everything look so much prettier!





Last but not least, I took some thin mints (frozen) and took my favorite ice cream (from McConnells) and smashed them together to join a perfect little combination of flavor and fun!  Hope you are able to start your St Patrick’s Day fun this weekend!
