Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Healthy Shamrock Shake

2018年8月8日

And, just like that… it’s NTTC Shake Week!!!

I love Shamrock Shakes.  Ok, let me rephrase that: I used to love Shamrock Shakes.  Now, I’d say, I love the idea of the Shamrock Shake.  If I drank one today, I think I would literally be sick.

Just the same, I have fond memories of sipping on those green milkshakes. And, let’s not even begin to talk about the fact that there are all new flavors this year.  There was a time in my life where I would be scooting over to the golden arches to enjoy a shake, but for this year, I headed to my kitchen to create a healthy alternative.

I used the Jenny Craig Vanilla Dream Shake as my base, and added a little fruit to make it healthier.  The picture above has just a smidgen of green sugar crystals, just for decorative purposes.  Please leave those off unless you feel the need to be extra festive!

Healthy Shamrock Shake

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation:  Healthy Shamrock Shake

1 Jenny Craig Vanilla Dream Shake

1 cup ice

1/2 frozen banana

1/8 – 1/4 tsp. peppermint flavoring

2-3 drops green food coloring

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.  Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Important Note:  Start slow with the peppermint flavoring.  I started with 1/8 tsp. and then added a few more drops.  Take it slow, and taste it along the way to get your right level of mintiness.
