This Skinny Shamrock Shake is a yummy mint chocolate chip milkshake that's lower in calories than a traditional milkshake. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day or chocolate mint lovers.
It's almost St. Patrick's Day, so I thought I'd share a festive treat with you today. Whether you're Irish or not, it's always fun to drink something green on March 17, right?! And here's a yummy green drink that's actually low in calories which is great for those of us that are still trying to stick to our New Year's resolutions to get in shape (that's me for sure, how about you?).
If you're a fan of the chocolate mint flavor combo, you're going to love this Skinny Shamrock Shake!
What I love about this Skinny Shamrock Shake is that it’s so delicious but with less calories than a traditional shake. I used a low calorie milk called Hood but you could use your favorite lowfat milk. You cou even use a dairy free milk such as almond milk or soy milk.
Ingredients you need for Skinny Shamrock Shake
Lowfat Milk - Use your favorite or choose a non-dairy milk, if you wish.
Low Calorie Sweetener - Again, use your favorite kind such as Stevia or Swerve sweetener.
Mint Extract - Another option is mint oil (food grade). It's available at most health food stores like Whole Foods.
Chocolate Chips - I like to use mini chocolate chips for this recipe. Try the stevia sweented chocolate chips to keep the calories low.
Green Food Coloring - This is optional but makes it so festive.
Ice - Crushed ice, if you have it.
Salt - Pink himalayan sea salt is my favorite.
Whipped topping - Such as Cool Whip (fat free)
Chocolate Syrup & Cherry - For garnish, if desired.
How to make a skinny shamrock shake
Making this Skinny Shamrock Shake is super easy. All you need is a blender and a few ingredients. First add a cup of Hood Calorie Countdown Whole Dairy Beverage to the blender. Then add ice, mint extract, your favorite low calorie sweetener (to taste), a few drops of green food coloring, pinch of salt and a handful of mini chocolate chips (I used sugar free chocolate chips). Put the lid on and blend until smooth!
Pour into a tall glass, then garnish as desired or just stick a straw in an enjoy the minty, chocolate goodness! Cheers and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I remember making a full-calorie version of this shake, back in the day, before I understood healthy eating. This is so much better and seems innocent, compared to the old way, that actually included Girl Scout cookies! (what was I thinking?) thanks for the tips!
