One word. Yummm! Do you enjoy the taste of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake but not all the calories and sugar that come with it? If so, try this!!! I’ve been on the hunt for a good protein shake recipe that involved my favorite Girl Scout cookie and I think I found it!

-1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract

-Few Drops of Green Food coloring (optional) If you want to make this healthier, add 1 cup chopped spinach instead.

Directions:

Add 1 cup of ice cubes and all ingredients above in to blender. Blend and enjoy!
