How to make a Skinny Shamrock Shake

Did you know you can use bananas to make one ingredient ice cream?

We decided to use that concept to make our favorite holiday treat.

Instead of adding in green food coloring, I wanted to keep this recipe wholesome.

I added in spinach leaves.

WAIT.. WAIT.. Don’t go. I only added in about 3 leaves to achieve the light green color. You can add more if you want.

You could also add green food coloring. But I promise, 3 spinach leaves did NOT alter the taste at all!! The mint outshined everything!

  1. A skinny shamrock shake sounds incredible but I won’t use peppermint extract, I’ll use spearmint. I haven’t had a shamrock shake that tasted like a candy cane yet. 😉 They’ve all had a mint ice cream flavour, which is spearmint.

  2. this has great texture, but I would recommend less peppermint extract. It tastes kind of like toothpaste but would be really good with about 1/4 of the peppermint.
