FOOD FRIDAY: Makeover 2 Favorite Treats Shamrock Shake & Thin Mints
Have you seen it? It’s that time of year again and ever since I can remember as a kid we LOVED the chance to get a McDonald’s shake, especially looked forward to that one time of year when they released the tasty SHAMROCK SHAKE. Well, I’m a little older and wiser now and if I can help it my kids will not be enjoying shakes of any flavor from McDonalds. We are living in a society where we are fighting obesity and giving into fast food and treats like these are not ok —even as a cheat treat! I am so thankful for my shakeology and that my own kids wake up and have a frothy chocolate shake to start their day, they really look forward to it even. So when celebrating St. Patty’s Day I’ll wake up this year and present them with this yummy treat and not feel one bit guilty about it.
Heck Yeah! So now even I can have a Shamrock Shake that has 70+ superfood ingredients, the equivalent to 6 salads in one meal, not feel bloated, not kill my diet and still lose weight and have energy!!! Enjoying food is one of those things that I love to do! I enjoy sweets and this is another way I can make it healthy!
So What’s the Ingredients:
- 8 oz Skim, Rice, Almond or Soy Milk
- 4 oz ice and water
- splash of peppermint extract or some mint water (don’t over do the extract or it will taste nasty!!!!)
- 1 tsp all natural pb
- 2 tbsp vanilla sugar free instant pudding mix
- 1 packet of Greenberry shakeology
- Blend & Enjoy!
Second up today, we have the ever popular Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. The number one seller every year is Thin Mints, yum! I’m not sure how it is in your house, but when we open one sleeve it’s GONE. So here’s a simple shake recipe to help you get that FIX!
Let’s do the MATH:
4 cookies = 160calories TMShakeo = 156calories
It’s not fair to even compare the nutrition content, hands down you know Shakeology is the winner!
I wish you all a very happy St. Patty’s Day and if you’re craving one of these treats, you now have a HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE that you and your loved ones can enjoy!
Cheers to Good Health!
