In honor of St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought what better way to celebrate than with a green milkshake! Even better, the entire shake is only 150 calories and 4 grams of fat! Compare that to a 12 oz. milk shake anywhere else and you’re looking at 420 calories per shake….yikes! I got this recipe out of my Hungry Girl cookbook and I couldn’t have been more pleased. This creamy vanilla milkshake has a hint of mint and is the perfect treat to satisfy any sweet tooth. Throw a bit of Baileys in there and you have yourself a yummy cocktail! Let me know how you like it and Happy St. Patty’s Day!
