Healthy McDonald's Shamrock Shake Alternative: Mint Smoothie Recipe

If you know me or you keep up with my social media pages, you know that I'm a total McDonald's shamrock shake diehard. If you haven't tried a "shammie" as I love to call them, you're seriously missing out! They're only available for a limited time over St. Patrick's day, and the only reason I don't go through the drive through everyday for one is...wah wah wah...they're terribly unhealthy!

Now, you know I'm all about moderation and part of my meal plan includes a few treat meals per week, so if you're enjoying a shammie for that, by all means, go for the real deal! BUT, my shammie cravings kick in about every night in the month of March, so I've done my best to recreate a completely healthy version.

While there is no true substitute for a shammie, in my opinion, this mint smoothie recipe is pretty close to taste perfection! Plus, it's so refreshing - I can totally see myself enjoying outside on the patio on a sunny day! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Ingredients:
-1 cup ice
-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
-1/2 avocado
-1/2 banana
-1 tbsp/2 packets stevia or other sugar substitute
-1/8 tsp mint extract or ~10 fresh mint leaves

Optional:
-1 tbsp dark chocolate chips (thin mint smoothie, anyone?)

NOTE: mint extract will yield a closer taste to a shamrock shake, while adding the mint leaves is a more natural option and produces a slightly "earthy" taste - green juice lovers you know what I mean

Prep:
(1) In a blender, combine all ingredients
(2) Blend well until a smooth, creamy consistency is reached (this may take longer if you're using fresh mint leaves)
(3) If including dark chocolate chips, stir in after blending

LG Meal Plan/Eat Your Way Lean Food Sections Fulfilled: carb, 2x fat (leave fat portion out of next meal if you include this smoothie), vegetable

Here's some exciting news!
A highly-requested sample preview of my Eat Your Way Lean ebook is finally available.

If you already have the ebook, there's nothing in the sample that's not in your copy.

If you'd like a peak into my ebook, teaching you how to implement my nutrition approach of eating in a specific way to actually see physical results (fit & lean), then you'll love this ebook preview!

What is #LGLoveYourselfFit?   

In short, it's one of my free blog challenges I host with daily workouts, tips and accountability challenges. This one is all about using health and fitness as a tool to boost your self love, confidence and overall happiness!   

To supercharge your results, I highly suggest you combine this fitness plan with my Eat Your Way Lean ebook, which will teach you how to eat in a specific way for physical results through a balanced nutrition approach!  It's helped so many women see great results and I want it to help you too!

Self-Love Message of the Day: 

Congratulations on completing the #LGLoveYourselfFit Challenge. Over the past 4 weeks, we've used health and fitness as the means for booting our self love, worth, confidence and overall happiness. While today wraps up the challenge, the journey of bettering ourselves from the inside out is far from being over! In fact, it's a life-long journey, and I'm so happy you completed this challenge with me because you formed the habits and gained the mindset that someone who loves herself and her life possesses.

Over the past 4 weeks, you've come so far! I know you have! I read it in your emails, comments and in your #LGAccountability check ins on Instagram. Like I said, this is not the end...there's so many more wonderful things to come and you simply must maintain your faith in that! 

You've learned that your current situation is a reflection of your past choices, which was difficult to swallow. But, you also learned that where you're at - physically, mentally and emotionally - can be changed. You've learned that it all begins with you, your thoughts and your actions. You've learned how to take action and make decisions that promote loving yourself, respecting yourself, putting yourself first, and building confidence. You've learned happiness is and inside job, and you must choose it daily. You've learned to surround yourself with people who support you in this quest to better yourself. You've learned the most important person you can count on is you. You truly have learned how to love yourself and your body more. You have all the tools you need to grow your confidence. You are gaining momentum, happiness, passion and a deeper sense of fulfillment each day! You are amazing! I'm so proud of you for what you've accomplished these past few weeks!

Biceps & Triceps (#LGLoveYourselfFit - "CONFIDENCE MUSCLE") - 3/12

-scroll over image to "pin it" or right click to save it to your phone/computer-


What is #LGLoveYourselfFit?   
In short, it's one of my free blog challenges I host with daily workouts, tips and accountability challenges. This one is all about using health and fitness as a tool to boost your self love, confidence and overall happiness!

Self-Love Message of the Day: 
I'm getting a little sentimental thinking about this being the second last day of #LGLoveYourselfFit because it's been my most cherished challenge yet. My mission is to help women use health and fitness to look better, feel better and lead lives they absolutely love through boosting self-love, confidence and happiness. Yes, a six pack, lifted booty, and fit arms are great goals, but what does any of that matter if you don't love who you are?! That's really the end goal of all my challenges and programs.

I hope by now you've seen self-love and confidence are all about practice. The more you consciously act in ways to live out these traits, the more they become lasting habits. Over the past 4 weeks, I hope I've helped you develop a sense of this, and now it's time for you to absolutey shine. Keep practicing it! Do whatever you have to do to remind yourself to act in ways of self-love and self-confidence. There will be times it's tough and moments where you feel down, but you now know your worth to persevere. I believe in you!


Daily Challenge: Use your confidence muscle today by rocking you most adorable gym outfit today! Can't wait to see those selfies!
