Shamrock Shake? Yes, please!

I’ve seen on the web that there’s a big ‘hooray’ out there for McDonald’s deciding to offer their Shamrock Shake at ALL their locations this year. That’s fabulous – except, do you know how many calories are in a Shamrock Shake? How about the sugar? I promise I won’t lecture about it! It’s just one of those things that I’m sure most of us consider – whether you’re trying to lose weight or just be healthy.

Well, I wanted to share the Shamrock Shake I had today. I’ll give you a preview….first, it was rich, thick, creamy and sweet. And oh-so-yummy! Second, it was only 230 calories and 12 grams of sugar BUT it had about 20 grams of protein and countless fruits, veggies, and wonderful whole food nutrition.

Whaaaat? Yeah you read it. But let me tell you again, this was just like a dessert, not like a health shake!

Here’s the finished, minty, creamy, sweet shake that I made today

The secret was Chalene Johnson’s Shamrock Shake recipe. You can watch her make it here: 

Here’s how I made mine (very close to hers!)

1 scoop greenberry shakeology
1 cup ice & water
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 teaspoons Sugar Free cheesecake jello mix
1 packet Stevia
1/2 cap mint extract

Blend until super smooth.

That’s it. The peanut butter & jello mix make it sweet and creamy (and pretty healthy). And the Shakeology makes it super healthy and even tastier. You could add a little more pudding mix if you’d like it even creamier tasting.

Yep, that’s Shakeology. My fav! And I’m not usually much of a fan of the greenberry flavor, but this shake is to die for. If you want more info on Shakeology, you can see details and the 100’s of unpaid doctor testimonials here:

So tell me, since we’re talking about sweets….what’s your favorite dessert or biggest indulgence?

    Thanks goodness shamrock shakes are only around for a short time. I hate to say it they are yummy but I only have maybe one a season when they come out. So I don’t feel bad. But I’m like you I workout because I eat cookies and then some. then again I am a baker. which means I am everyone nightmare when it comes to sugar and fat!! I still love my vegetables and fruit though.
