Low-Calorie Shamrock Shake Cocktail Recipe

Feb 28 2017

Rock On, Shamrock Fans...

When we decided to make an alcohol-infused version of our Clean & Green Shamrock Shake, we tested it with several different liquors before settling on this delicious recipe. (Oh, the hardships we endure for our readers!) In the end, it was simple white rum for the win. Trust us... Our recipe is a much better bet than spiking the sugary shake sold at McDonald's! P.S. It also tastes excellent after an hour or so in the freezer!

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
