It seems McDonalds has lead the way in turning food/drink green with their infamous Shamrock Shake. I have to admit it’s festive & fun but is it healthy? It is green after all…ha! Sorry to say that it’s not. It is chalk full of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, not to mention calories! 530 calories to be exact in just a small 12-ounce shake. 

If you can’t live without a little green goodness this St. Patty’s day…I say skip the shamrock shake and try one our delicious & nutritious green smoothies in the Fit Livin’ app.
