Celebrate St. Patrick's Day without guilt

Celebrating often makes us feel terrible or guilty the next day. Here are two suggestions for enjoying St. patty's day and indulging in the best of everything!

If your hoping to indulge in something green here are some great options:

Sip on some green champagne
Less calories than beer and tastes better too!

There is once a year you might get me to drive thru the McDonald's Drive thru...that's for a shamrock shake!

Thank you to Rose Cole for this fabulous recipe!

Raw Mint-Chip Shamrock Shake

1-2 Tbs cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
1 frozen large banana (the more ripe, the better)
1-2 drops peppermint extract (or handful of fresh mint leaves)
1/4 cup frozen spinach (or opt for all-natural green food coloring, or just make a white mint shake)
2/3 cup non-dairy milk of choice (coconut, almond, hemp, etc. Use more or less, depending on desired thickness.)

Blend everything together and enjoy!
