Healthy Shamrock Shake Smoothie Recipe For Dogs

One of my favorite things as a kid was the Shamrock Shake! I always looked forward to March when McDonald’s would release this minty treat for a few weeks. Now that I’m grown up and like to eat healthily, I’m not as excited about a traditional Shamrock Shake. Have they gotten sweeter, or have my tastes changed?

Either way, I found a way to get my minty Shamrock Shake fix with a healthy smoothie recipe. This Shamrock Shake smoothie is so healthy that I can even share it with my dog!  Lucy absolutely loved it!

Lucy’s two favorite foods in the world are yogurt and bananas. This healthy Shamrock Shake smoothie contains both! Yogurt is a great source of calcium and probiotics for dogs. And dog-friendly bananas provide potassium. The added mint gives her a nice burst of fresh breath, too!

A quick note about making dog-friendly foods… When you’re making a recipe to share with your dog, make sure there’s no added sugar or salt since those ingredients aren’t good for them.

Safe Smoothie Ingredients for Dogs

For this dog-friendly smoothie, I used healthy ingredients like plain unsweetened almond milk, plain greek yogurt, fresh spinach, fresh mint and frozen bananas. If you don’t have any fresh mint handy, you could also use a few drops of natural peppermint essential oil.

Dog Friendly Shamrock Shake Recipe


3/4 cup Plain Almond Milk
2 heaping tbsp Plain Greek Yogurt
2 frozen bananas
1 large handful of spinach
4 sprigs of mint

Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. This works best if the bananas were sliced before being frozen. If you don’t have fresh mint on hand, just substitute with a few drops of 100% natural peppermint oil.

Pour half of the mixture into a cup for you and the other half in a bowl for your dog! I topped mine with whipped cream and Lucy got a shamrock shaped dog treat. You can make your own shamrock dog treats using this cookie cutter and my favorite easy treat recipe.

Lucy Shamrock Shake

Lucy is such a helper in the kitchen! She made sure I stayed focus and mixed these Shamrock Shakes up as fast as possible. To make it all a little more fun, I garnished her glass with a lucky organic shamrock treat from Bo’s Bones and I added some whipped cream to mine. We both got a fresh mint leaf on top since you can never have enough mint!

Although a lot of people give whipped cream to their dogs, I wouldn’t recommend it. It usually contains sugar which isn’t good for your dog.
