Healthier Shamrock Shake

I like how thick and creamy the shamrock shake at Mcdonald’s is. I think it’d be kind of complicated to make it at home since Mcdonald’s uses soft serve ice cream that comes right out of their machine. Usually when we buy it in the stores it’s hard so , that is the main reason why I think it’d be difficult to make it that way. Store bought works just as good though. I think if you really wanted to you could go to an ice cream store  that sells just ice cream and ask for some soft serve. Or, if you have an ice cream machine at home you could make it yourself. Gotta to try that one time. 😉

Here’s my recipe for a shamrock shake that’s healthier. I added a scoop of protein powder to it this time and thought that made it a lot creamier. Very good. All you need is a blender to make this too. Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
