Healthy Shamrock Shake

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to create something creamy and green like McDonald’s Shamrock Shake. They always look so festive and delicious! I even woke up craving a milkshake, which is super weird for me. I’ve never really enjoyed ice cream, milkshakes or anything in that family so this was a new experience. I present to you my newest creation, the Healthy Shamrock Shake.

I knew I had to go to the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients since I haven’t bought vegan frozen dessert before. I picked up some frozen coconut milk ice cream, avocado, mint extract and fresh mint, hoping that these ingredients would come together into a mouthwatering milkshake-style drink. Luckily, it all came together wonderfully!
