It's Shamrocky Shake time!

St. Patrick’s day is coming up and we’re so excited to welcome Spring with this magical March holiday. One of the coolest things about St. Patrick’s day is that it’s a celebration of the color green; green clothes, green leprechauns, green clovers and green food!  When it comes to food, you can’t get any better then green – kale, avocados, kiwi, spinach and (lets not forget about) broccoli veggie wedgies!  So why dye your food with artificial food coloring when we can just use what nature gave us to add some St. Patty’s Day festivities to our food?!

Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day more then the refreshingly minty Shamrocky Shake:

We’re reinventing this classic St. Patrick’s Day dessert and turning it into a tasty, vitamin packed treat, perfect for both you and all the little leprechauns in your life!


·1 can of unsweetened lite coconut milk
·5-pitted dates
·2 heaping tbs of almond butter
·3-5 sprigs of mint
·1 cup of chilled mint tea
·1/8 tsp of peppermint extract
·1-2 leaves of kale
·3 cups of ice

Remove mint leaves from the stem and place in a blender with dates (make sure all the dates are pitted) and add the whole can of coconut milk and blend until smooth (you want to make sure that the dates and mint leaves are completely blended).  Combine all other ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  Add more ice and/or kale to get the desired consistency and color.

Makes 4 servings
