Easy and different St. Patrick’s Day recipes (NOT corned beef and cabbage)

I’m sharing two recipes today. One is a “diet” Shamrock Shake, the other cancels out the diet shake because it’s Irish Cream Brownies. Enjoy them both!

Shamrock Shake: Thanks to Hungry Girl for this low fat and nutritious recipe!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla breeze almond milk
6 tablespoons vanilla whey powder
1/3 cup spinach leaves (yes, really!)
1/8 tsp. peppermint extract

Blend at high speed in blender until smooth.

Yields 1 serving at 133 calories and 6 carbs.
Now to cancel out the Shamrock Shake with these delicious brownies:
