Healthy Mint Chocolate Protein Shamrock Shake

It's almost St. Patrick's day and while some people will be enjoying green beer and others will be hitting the drive through for a seasonal Shamrock Shake, I decided to take it to the kitchen to celebrate St. Paddy's Day with a healthy Mint Chocolate Shamrock Protein Shake. It's the perfect refuel drink for after your St. Patrick's day 5K. 

I am compensated as a Premier Protein ambassador. They keep me stocked with protein but all opinions are my own. 

Healthy Mint Chocolate Shamrock Protein Shake

Handful of fresh spinach
1 frozen sliced banana
1/4 tsp of peppermint extract
1 scoop of Premier Protein Chocolate protein powder
Dark chocolate chips (optional)

Add all ingredients to blender. Add water as needed to mix. 

That max fill line is just a suggestion, right? Hah.

Hope you enjoy St. Paddy's Day this year and even though Ollie's not Irish, he joined in on the fun.

Ollie wins. Hands down.

How are you celebrating St. Paddy's Day?

  1. This sounds yummy and super easy!

    PS I totally have that same oil container on my counter. :) LOL.

  2. MMMM. Sounds delicious. Lucky you to be able to get all that yummy Premier Protein... we can now buy the shakes at Costco in Canada so that is terrific! Someday maybe we will get the powders and bars too. I think you and Ollie are both adorable in the green scarf! Happy St. Paddy's Day to you both!
