Being somewhat of Irish descent… St. Patrick’s day is kind of a big deal around the Thueson household. The leprechauns come and leave little treats for my kiddos. We eat green pancakes that somewhat resemble a shamrock. And most importantly, we ALL must wear green. The pinching gets a little intense if you don’t! Just a fair warning for those of you who might stop in on us! You’ve been warned!

So with this in mind, I had to come up with a St Paddy’s inspired Shamrock Shake! I’m not a big fan of McDonald’s, but they do make a delicious shake. So this “copycat Mcdonald’s Shamrock protein shake” delivers all the delicious Irish cream taste without the extra calories, grams of sugar, and who knows what else. 👀

So with this tasty recipe, you’ll not only get a great-tasting shake, you’ll get an excellent source of protein to power your day!

This recipe is super simple to throw together and delivers delicious taste and high protein 20+ grams! This is a HUGE win in my book!

Without fail, I always receive emails asking me what protein shake brands I recommend, and for good reason! There are a lot of sketchy products and brands out there that have artificial growth hormone rBST in their products, artificial flavor, and

other ingredients it is best for you to shy away from.


Each Protein Powder I recommend has the highest quality ingredients, with no sketchy crap that many brands use.

Happy Blending, and for even more delicious protein shakes – check out my Protein Shake Recipe EBook!
