Thin Mint Shamrock Shakeology

thin mint shakeology

No visits to McDonalds today for my family! I blended up a batch of chocolate Shakeology today that tastes just like Girl Scout thin mint cookies! I added the recipe on the picture of my little buddy enjoying his St. Patty’s Day shake. I actually used Young Living Peppermint essential oil instead of mint extract, but I know not everyone has that on hand.

Let’s compare, shall we?
