“Shamrock Shake”

I’ve never had a shamrock shake.

Not even when I was little (thank goodness).

I’d like to say that I was food conscientious from a young age, but I wasn’t.

I just hated mint. And still do, by the way.

Still, I kinda felt alienated with all the green drinks around me. People love their shamrock shakes apparently :/

So, I made my own, tasting probably nothing like McD’s version. But that’s okay. Free of the mystery ingredients and dyes AND bypassing on the mint? AND being green. I’ll happily take it and chug it down 🙂

  1. So I’ve never met someone else who didn’t like mint! I actually hate the flavor, which has made for very sad dessert faces sometimes! I think this green smoothie sounds delicious!

      Haha! I’ve tried so hard to like mint, but I just can’t! It’s the worst bitting into something chocolate and only then realizing it’s mint. Such a waste 😦
