This version is much healthier (than the original McDonald’s version), and is made without any artificial colorings or preservatives. The spinach is the secret to the beautiful green hue!

      Thanks Liz! You are so right! It’s a lot more refreshing than the McDonald’s version. Although the flavor profile is different than the original (a stronger fresh mint flavor and less sweet) it’s still a festive and tasty mint shake :)
