Healthy Shamrock Shake

Shamrock Shake – everyone is familiar with this St Patrick’s Day treat from the golden arches. Since I no longer eat refined sugar or dairy, I wanted to come up with a treat that I could feel good about sharing with my little leprechauns.


Yield: 2 cups

Healthy Shamrock Shake

This shamrock shake is a healthy version of the well loved, not-so-healthy version that is popular around St Patrick's day. This shamrock shake is Paleo, dairy-free and refined sugar free.


  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach (or 1/4 cup frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 3-4 drops peppermint essential oil*
  • 1 tablespoons pure raw honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • coconut chips (optional for garnish)


  1. Put all the ingredients together in a blender (I use a Vitamix) till smooth, pour into little mason jars, add some cute straws and you are ready for a healthy St Patrick's Day treat.

* I use doTerra peppermint essential oil.
