We are all friends here, right? Okay, so please don’t judge me for what I’m about to tell you.
I, Kelly, blogger and real food lover at Primally Inspired, am an ex-shamrock shake lover.
I said it.
I know, I know, terrible right?!
You don’t have to tell me. I already know that the shamrock shake from the golden arches is filled with an obscene amount of artificial flavorings and probably loaded with sugar and dairy from unhealthy cows, and lastly that it’s…… green……from food dye.
Regardless, I used to treat myself to one shamrock shake a year. I knew they were horrible for me, but I loved them anyway and looked forward to when March rolled around so I could partake in my annual green dye shamrock shake.
But no more!
Ever since the first shamrock shake was spotted from the golden arches, my non-health fanatic, jokester friends have been texting me pictures of their shamrock shakes trying to make me jealous and get me to budge and buy one. I’ve been getting at least one picture a day. But nope, this chick will absolutely not cave in and buy a shamrock shake. It’s not happening. And do you want to know why I can without a doubt say that?
Because I created something even better! So nanny nanny boo boo to all my friends texting me pics of your shamrock shakes.
Yes, you heard right. I have something waaaaay better and I still get to have my shamrock shake! And it’s even green! I created a super healthy, super filling copycat version that I’ve been totally loving. Perfectly creamy, perfectly minty, perfectly wonderful.
