Shamrock Soft Serve

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day
This is the only day of the year where the world turns green and everyone claims some ties to being Irish…. well, I have always been proud of  my Irish heritage.  My paternal grandfather was an Orangeman and we have always celebrated our Celtish roots.
But no Shamrock Shake or even dark red beer for me this year… so I decided to celebrate with a Shamrock Soft Serve instead.

It was so easy....  I just put a handful (about 1 cup) of fresh spinach into the bowl of my food processor with a splash (about 2 Tbs) of unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze and set it to whizz until the spinach was cut up into small bits… then I tossed in a cu-tup frozen banana and pureed the works for a couple of minutes.
It is delicious!  Sweet from the banana but no banana flavor at all… or spinach either.

Just look at that awesome color!
How are you celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day?


  1. This sounds tasty! I wonder if you could add some mint flavor in there to make it even more Shamrock Shake-like?

  2. Oh my goodness, this sounds so good and looks delicious!

  3. So pretty and sounds yummy! Love Vanessa's idea for mint ahhh

    We started the morning with a green smoothie, didn't turn out too good, it was actually too sweet. BUT later in the day we had a green juice and OH MY it was so good.

    I know it's about over but Happy St. Patrick's Day!
