Shamrock Smoothie

March 17th, 2014 by Jennie with 3 comments

Everyone is going crazy over the Shamrock Shakes from McDonald’s and in honor of St. Patty’s Day, I am here to bring you a much healthier version…. a Shamrock SMOOTHIE! 

Green-Smoothie-ChallengeWith summer approaching, the last thing I need is a high caloric, artificially flavored shake! In fact, I created my 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge for those looking to take control of their health! Green smoothies can help curb your appetite, reduce sugar cravings, aid in weight loss and help boost your mood!

 

What I love about this smoothie is that it gets your greens in and can still fulfill those  sugar cravings in a YUMMY and healthy way!

 

Shamrock Smoothie 

  • 2 cups of almond milk

  • 1 frozen banana (if not frozen you will need to add ice so it is nice and cold… nobody wants to drink a lukewarm smoothie!)

  • 2 Tbls unsweetened raw cacao powder (Yes ladies, this is chocolate goodness and also a SUPERFOOD!)

  • 2 dates (Soaked if you don’t have a high powered blender)

  • ¼  walnuts

  • 2-3 handfuls of spinach (Don’t be scared of this! Spinach is the least potent greens you can get. I guarantee you won’t even be able to taste it!)

  • ½ tsp vanilla

  • 1 or 2 drops of doTERRA peppermint essential oil

If you have a high powered blender, you can throw all in and blend. If not, start with your liquid and greens and blend well. Add your frozen banana and blend. Then add the remaining ingredients. This will ensure a smooth consistency. Drink and ENJOY! 

 

My family loves this “dessert” smoothie after dinner, but you can make this any time of day to curb those sugar cravings. The peppermint essential oil not only packs a delicious flavor, but has amazing therapeutic properties. It helps aid in digestion, tummy aches and indigestion when taken internally. Peppermint oil can also cure a headache, help colic, reduce fever, and help allergies just to name a few. 

 

doTERRA essential oils are the only oils you can use for internal consumption!  I am happy to answer any questions about green smoothies or essential oils and would love to send you a sample to try in your smoothie! You can email me at jennie@motherhoodsupport.com 

 

Happy Saint Patty’s Day! It’s time to get your green-smoothie- mustache on!
