Protein Shamrock Shake

 


This McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Copycat has all the flavor without all the calories! A must try!

Servings: 1 serving 

GREEN/BLUE/PURPLE : 4 smartpoint per serving if using Enlightened vanilla bean ice cream 

Why spend 23 SmartPoints on a 12 oz. McDonald’s Shamrock Shake when you can make a protein packed one at home for only 4 SmartPoints?

That’s right…23 points for a 12 oz! Crazy huh?!

What ingredients do I need to make this Shamrock Shake?

  • Low point vanilla bean ice cream– I like to use Enlightened or Halo Top. You can search HERE for the nearest store that sells Halo Top. You can search HERE for the nearest store that sells Enlightened. 
  • Unsweetened almond or coconut milk or vanilla premier protein
  • Pure mint extract-not peppermint. Using peppermint extract will make the shake taste more like a candy cane-the mint extract gives it the true authentic Shamrock Shake flavor. You can find mint extract at most grocery stores or HERE on Amazon. 
  • Liquid green food coloring or 2 tsp of spinach powder for natural food coloring 
  • Protein powder-this is optional. I like to use Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake protein powder. 

 

What kind of Protein Powder could I add to this Protein Shamrock Shake?

I use Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake Protein Powder. It’s gluten-free, low in sugar, 20 grams of protein and only 1 Smartpoint per scoop.

You may substitute the Devotion Protein Powder for any vanilla base protein powder. 

Where can I get Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake Protein Powder?

You can order this online and save 10% on your order with Devotion using promo code PD10.

What can I use in place of protein powder?

You can substitute the unsweetened almond milk and protein powder and use vanilla premier protein shake for the same point value.

The Premier Protein shakes can be found at most grocery stores or online HERE.

    I love to get a chocolate shamrock shake at McDonald’s. Do you know what would be a good, healthy chocolate to add to your shamrock recipe to make it a mint-chocolate shake?
