SHAMROCK SHAKE-Belly Buster version


just like at McDonalds but with less calories and carbs!

I will post 3 versions for those of you that don't like mint and those of you that like chocolate mint!

Version 1: McDonalds  Mint Shamrock Shake:

1 cup of Almond Milk or Lite Soy Milk
1 packet of Vanilla Creme pudding protein powder (or 1 scoop of vanilla, other brands)
1/2 packet B&A Lime Gelatin (or 1/3 packet sugar-free store bought)
1 drop Watkins peppermint flavoring 
1/3 dropper of Peppermint Stevia (you can get it on our site if you can't find it locally)
1 cup ice
Cool Whip or Redi-Whip

Dilute Lime Gelatin in 1/3 cup hot water. Blend in blender with milk and pudding mix, then add flavoring and sweetener. Next add ice and chop until you have desired thickness. Top with Cool Whip or RediWhip.

VERSION 2:Chocolate Mint Shamrock Shake

 Just like above except use 1/2 Mint Cocoa Protein Pkt and  1 Vanilla Creme Pudding instead of the Lime Jello. Still use the Peppermint and Sweetener and then swirl Walden Farm Chocolate Sauce in it before topping with whipped cream.

VERSION 3 (my favorite): Tropical Shamrock Shake

Just like above except only use the Vamilla Creme Pudding and Lime Jello, no mint flavoring.  Add 1/3 cup crushed pineapple to the blender and if you want more green, add green food coloring...just a couple of drops.  You can add clear stevia if you need it sweeter. Delish!  The luck of the Irish to ya!

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day by eating chocolate?  The real stuff with sugar?  You can make your own low carb delights--doesn’t have to be an unhealthy, glucose-spiking indulgence! You are sure to fall in love with these 21 great low carb Valentine’s dessert recipes, courtesy of other blogs. NOTE: For the Belly Buster Diet, I would not use Swerve as it has 5 grams of Erithytol and can make you have bloating and gas, especially if you have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome.)
