As soon as January ends and the stores start decorating for the St. Patrick's Day holiday, millions of people anxiously awake the limited-time release of McDonald's Shamrock Shake. This year, with 2020 being the 50 year anniversary of this minty delight, McDonald's also rolled out an Oreo Shamrock McFlurry for those who like to add a little chocolate to the mix.
And people are going nuts over it!
The Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's have a cult-like following who will often go out of their way to drive past a McDonald's that carries this dessert to get their fix. Makes me wonder what they're actually putting into that magical Shamrock Syrup...
Whether you love it, hate it or never tried it, you can probably guess that this fast food shake is loaded with fat, calories and added sugars. A total bummer, especially when you want one so bad!
But today's your lucky day!
I have a healthy copycat recipe that will have you kicking up your heels and feeling like you found the pot of gold, because it's THAT GOOD!
With about half the calories, 1/3 of the fat, and 25% of the sugar content, this Green Shamrock (or Lucky O'Shake) is an overall healthier alternative to satisfy your craving without the guilt and without blowing your whole month of food allowances with one dessert.
It's packed with protein, fiber, Shakeology superfoods, probiotics, antioxidants, and a ton of yummy flavor that will have you second guessing which one actually tastes better! Because there is no questions which one is the better choice!
Give it a try for yourself, let me know what you think!
