Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Whether you’re Irish, celebrate with the Irish, or don’t celebrate St. Patty’s at all, this delicious smoothie will make your day.
It’s really a shake, but it’s so good for you, you can eat it for breakfast any morning. We use fresh mint leaves to give it a refreshing mint flavor, plus optional peppermint extract. If you can’t find peppermint extract at your supermarket, it will still be delicious with just the mint leaves.
On Thursday, I’m going to share how to get your kids to cut back on sugar, and this recipe is an ideal way to get started. My kids love it – it really tastes like mint ice cream to them. And we top it with raw cacao nibs to give it a chocolatey sprinkle.
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.LUCKY CLOVER SHAKE

More addictive than cocaine, sugar alters brain chemistry and hijacks your health — causing cravings and withdrawal symptoms, binging, and weight gain. But there is a way to leave sugar behind. You’ll find out about it at an epic online event I’m hosting soon…
Don't miss The Get Off Your Sugar Summit, a free event starting Monday, which will help you understand and address sugar's insidious effects and how to kick the sugar habit for good.
