skinny-shamrock-shake-Fresh April Flours

It’s that time of year again, green in all the stores, green on every wall…
Yup, St. Patty’s pumped to shake some shamrocks.  Guess who else is pumped?



Every year around this time, McDonald’s comes out with their notorious Shamrock Shake.  This thing is deathly dosed with so much junk and sugar, it would give Willy Wonka a cavity.

Here’s the thing about the Shamrock Shake that can be argued, it’s pretty tasty… but do you really want it?

Or better yet, would you want your kids to have this drink?

If you’re not sure whether or not to pick one up, or to let your kids have one, maybe seeing the nutritional facts would help make your decision more clear.

No matter which size, this is a calorie-packed bomb that not even the Green Goblin would throw at Spiderman.

It’s packed full of things that will NOT help with your weight loss goals,
will NOT help with your fat loss goals,
will NOT give you a good feeling in your body after you drink it down,
and it definitely will NOT keep your insulin levels in check.

If you’re craving something sweet, something green, and something minty…don’t go for the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, try the Skinny Shamrock Shake from my beautiful wife over at Fresh April Flours. The ingredients are better, the nutritional information is better, and this is actually a St. Patty’s themed drink you can feel good about.
