Girlbert's Shamrock Shake

Shamrock Shake a la Girlbert

Everybody's talking about that funky, neon green shake that McDonald's blesses us with every St. Patrick's Day.  Apparently, people like my Little Brother are even trying to make their version at home, to keep with the 43-year-old, Irish-American tradition of green-shake eating whilst sparing themselves a trip to the supersized burger-and-fries mega-chain.  While there are already plenty of recipes out there, most of them requiring a lot of emerald food coloring, so I've got a solution that will get you the green naturally (unlike the crazy leprechaun wig that I'm currently wearing!) and deliciously!  I even surprised myself!

Tools needed: 
15 minutes
1/2 cup coconut cream, really cold, but not frozen
1/4 cup mint leaves, washed
1 1/2 cups raw baby spinach leaves, washed
1/2 cup raw parsley leaves, washed
1/2 cup dandelion leaves, washed
1 frozen banana
1 large, ripe pear, washed and cored
1/2 cup ice
  1. Put all the ingredients in the blender, blend on high until delicious! 
  2. Add more ice if necessary and blend again.
  3. Drink with a straw wearing a green wig!
