    One reason for not using fresh mint could be that there is six inches of snow covering the mint plants. LOL - 3/9/14

    I would think that plain nonfat Greek yogurt would be better than the frozen yogurt and fresh spinach leaves would be better than food coloring.. if a person has fresh mint that would be nice too.. Non-sweetened cashew milk is only 25 cals a cup it would help with the final calorie count. - 3/7/15

    If you look at the calorie breakdown of this recipe by ingredient,THE MILK IS NOT INCLUDED.

    When you add in the milk, it's an additional 42 calories. Total for one serving is really 206.7.

    is an alternative for those who wanted a whole foods version. It uses avocado as the green colouring.

    It was fine. I'd almost recommend leaving the milk out if your frozen yogurt is really soft like ours was--the end result is kind of runny. - 3/27/15

    For a mom who has a son who loves the fast-food 600 calorie version, this is a great and fast alternative. He loved it just as much as the really green version, even without the whipped topping and maraschino cherry. I skipped the green food coloring and used Stevia. Everyone loved it. - 3/14/15

    How is this good for you? It looks like a chemical cancer storm. Green food coloring and non calorie sweetener? Not to mention, who-knows-what ingredients in your non-fat frozen yogurt and processed non-fat milk. No thank you. Anyone have a whole food friendly option? I like suggestions for mint. - 3/6/15

    One question. Why would anyone make a "shamrock shake," yet not put any mint in it? *Fresh* mint, that is. Thanks. - 3/7/14

    I used slow churned ice cream instead; but I would omit the ice cubes, lessen the amount of peppermint, and maybe use less milk next time. The ice cubes didn't completely mix in, the peppermint was a bit strong for my taste, and it wasn't very thick. - 3/4/15

    Thank you for sharing, but I think I will stick to a smoothie of non-fat Greek yogurt, kale/spinach, a few pieces of frozen banana, Matcha tea, nonfat milk or unsweetened Almond milk. - 3/16/16

    Uhm Splenda? (can you say sucralose) in reality, itís a chlorinated sucrose derivative. Yes, chlorine, one of the most toxic chemicals on the planet! Sucralose was originally found through the development of a new insecticide compound and wasnít originally intended to be consumed - 3/16/19

    This recipe looks good but I'm just wondering - looking at the photo - what are the dark specks throughout and on top? It looks like it may be chocolate or something but I'm not sure. Is this an actual photo of the recipe here or is it a stock photo which may or may not be the recipe? Just curious. - 3/16/19

  • Plain nonfat greek yogurt was measured out and threw it in the freezer for about 15 min. Also did try adding some fresh spinach for the green color vs. food coloring. Sweetener was about 1/4 tsp of agave, and taste. Can add more if needed. Did not add milk. - 3/16/18

    My fresh mint plant is barely showing signs of life in Connecticut. Maybe some down south have an inside plant or early first harvest but I might be able to modify this in two months when It's either eat the mint or let it escape from the pot time. Might try some protein powder in this. - 3/17/14
