'Tis the season for Shamrock Shakes

Shamrock Shake

With the celebration of St. Patrick's Day later this week, it is also that special time of year to celebrate another highlight of March - the Shamrock Shake. How I do love their creamy minty green goodness.

Imagine my dismay, then, when I saw the shocking nutritional information for a 12oz Shamrock Shake!

  • 420 calories
  • 9g fat
  • 72g carbs
  • 0g fiber
  • 9g protein

Plug these stats into a Weight Watchers calculator, and you get a whopping 11 Points+! I never would have guessed it was that high.

So I went looking for some alternatives and, giving soul that I am, have compiled them here for you. Also for you, I did not link out to any wanna-be makeovers that included ingredients like spinach or kelp. I'm all for healthy eating (well, maybe not ALL...), but I do expect my ice cream to have ice cream in it!

Since my husband does P90X workouts, and likes the Beachbody Recovery Drink, I thought I'd link to this Shakeology recipe (though I suspect it wouldn't pass my personal taste test): Shakeology Shamrock Shake

Slainte!
