I grew up with fairly health-conscious parents. My dad and mom had a daily green drink ritual (still do), always stocked our fridge with non-dairy milk and tofu, and had a fondness for making giant pots of mung beans and rice. When I wanted to eat junk or fast food, I had to beg and plead for weeks until my mom eventually caved and bought it for me. And every time, without fail, I would be so completely disappointed with whatever “treat” I had convinced her to let me eat, if not downright sick (because when you eat well for most of your life and then you try pseudo-food, your body basically revolts).

I definitely credit my parents for laying the foundation for how I eat today, as well as my lack of nostalgia for a lot of the pre-made, holiday treats other people my age ate as kids. A couple of things I do love though are 1) mint ice cream and 2) extra thick smoothies. That’s why I decided it was finally time to honor a St. Patrick’s Day tradition with my own take: a vegan Shamrock Shake Smoothie.

This easy green smoothie requires only 7 ingredients and all of them are wholesome. It uses Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk, a frozen banana, and cashew butter to make an extra creamy base. It’s also naturally green thanks to some frozen spinach and fresh mint leaves. I love using spinach in my smoothies because the flavor is pretty undetectable, and frozen spinach is great for making extra thick, milkshake-like smoothies.

A few options for this recipe: If you’re craving something sweet and mint chocolate-y, add a couple of tablespoons of raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder). If you want to increase the protein a bit, feel free to blend in a tablespoon of vanilla protein powder, and/or use Silk Organic Unsweetened Soymilk instead of Cashewmilk. Both milks are super creamy, making them the perfect non-dairy stand-ins for a plant-based version of everyone’s favorite Shamrock Shake. Except unlike the fast food version, this real food smoothie will actually make your body feel good. Cheers to that!

    What an awesome idea! I’m definitely down for skipping the dairy, processed sugar, and chemicals in regular McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes. I can’t wait to make this healthy treat! Thanks Amanda!

  2. Rachel says

    I love cashew milk so much. It’s the creamiest of the nut milks. 😉 I so wish I had one of these shamrock shakes right now! (I’m going to make one tonight because I have all of these ingredients!)

  3. Allison says

    Great timing! My boyfriend was literally asking for a shamrock shake this morning, but we’re both trying to eat better. I’m going to make him this instead! Thank you for creating a healthy alternative for St. Patty’s Day!

  4. I wish my parents were more health conscious…. they didn’t let me eat a ton of junk food, but we didn’t eat a whole lot of vegetables, and refined flours and pastas were the norm. But I’ve definitely come a long way since then, and I’ve helped my parents make great strides too!! As an example- my mom only uses almond milk now 🙂 It’s the small victories, you know!!

  5. Becca says

    How fun and festive! I’m going to make this as my post-workout shake after the gym tonight. Love your idea to add some protein powder! <3

  6. Sarah L. says

    I tried your smoothie shake this morning and had to report back – it’s incredible! This is going to be my new after workout smoothie, even when it’s not St. Paddy’s Day. 😉
