Day 8 21DSD – A Shamrock Shake!

IMG_4281Who says shamrock shakes are only for St. Patrick’s Day? This Irish girl welcomes a good luck charm anytime! Today, I am enjoying a variation of PaleOMG’s Creamy Green Apple Smoothie. 

I am using a variation, because I ate my last avocado for lunch…poor planning on my part! I think the addition of the avocado would make it thicker (hence the “creamy” in the original version…). I also used half kale/half spinach, because I wanted to.

Here is my version, known now as “Shamrock Green Apple Shake” due to its thinner consistency.

Shamrock Green Apple Shake

  • 1.5 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used the kind in the carton)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and quartered
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup kale
  • handful of  ice

Add to Vitamix in order listed. Start on lowest variable speed. Increase to highest speed. Flip to high. Pour and enjoy!
