Healthy Shamrock Shake

Are you one of the many that fall victim to craving this shake every Spring?  There's something about a green and mint-flavored milk shake that is hard to resist.  Not only does it taste amazing - but it's fun to celebrate holiday's with themed foods and beverages.

But - we also know this shake carries a ton not-so-healthy ingredients.  Far from what we'd recommend on this blog.  Check out our take on a healthy Shamrock Shake.  It's not only full of amazing real food ingredients, but super tasty and provides a way to celebrate Spring's up and coming holiday. 



  • 1 peppermint tea bag
  • 6-8 ounces unsweetened vanilla almond or cashew milk
  • 1/4 of a ripe avocado
  • 2 tbsp matcha powder


  1. Steep tea bag in almond milk for 3-5 minutes. Once done, pour into an ice cube tray and put in freezer until forms ice cubes.
  2. Add ice cubes to the base of the blender and add in only ingredients.  Blend until smooth
