Minty Green Shake

One of my favorite things about this time of year is a delicious mint flavored shake, but I don’t need all the fat and chemicals that are in a typical fast-food treat. This is a delicious version to make yourself at home, with only a few ingredients, and greatly reduced fat and calories. This recipe makes 2, you can halve or double, according to your needs. Yum!

Place everything but garnish into blender, beat until smooth, pour into glasses, garnish as desired, enjoy!
