Generally, this diet has definitely made me want the nasty processed stuff less than usual. But the thing that always gets me--
LIMITED EDITION HOLIDAY SPECIAL ONLY GOING TO BE AROUND WHILE YOUʻRE ON A DIET AND YOUʻLL ALWAYS WONDER IF ITʻS GOOD
A while ago it was the Oreos in every possible new flavor... And I love Oreos. So that was killing me. I caved and ate the lemon, birthday cake, and berry ice cream flavors probably all in the same week.
I started seeing the Shamrock Shake pop up and I thought, oh no. Here it is. Another thing that Iʻm going to have to wait a year for. I adore holiday themed foods. Especially holidays like St. Patrickʻs Day which have very little meaning whatsoever. (Sorry, Irish peoples, if I just offended you.)
To try to talk myself out of it I looked at this: Whatʻs Really In That Shamrock Shake?
Ok, so maybe itʻs not such a good idea.
Iʻm sure even a homemade just pain olʻ icecream shake would be better than that.
So I made my Paleo Version. And Yes, itʻs healthy. I mean, spirulina is some seriously natural food coloring and freaking good for you too.
Iʻve also seen a couple of versions using avocado, which is a fantastic idea. Thatʻs what Iʻm going to try next. Maybe just frozen bananas and avocado and there will be no need for ice cubes. I also like coconut milk but I wasnʻt so sure about coconut milk and mint together.
I really like dates. So good.
