Yesterday's Shamrock Shake recipe is good -- creamy and rich. Yet also vegan. But I challenge you to try an even healthier version of the treat. No, this shake tastes nothing like the McDonald's favorite. But it's a great, minty way to get your greens in the morning.
So, why not give it a try? I'm on the green smoothie kick again. I feel it's a fantastic way to greet spring. And it seems like springtime weather might be here to say. The temps reached 50 degrees here yesterday -- and the sun is out earlier in the morning and later at night. What's the tagline? I'm lovin' it? Well, we most definitely are.
