I don’t know about you but I LOVE SHAMROCK SHAKES. So much.
When I was in college, I would anxiously await their return to the McDonald’s menu and then, before I had any care about ingredients, would purchase at least one a week until they were again removed from the menu almost a month later… YIKES.
Now that I have more knowledge about nutrition, I would never again purchase a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a nutritious, tasty alternative! These Keto Shamrock Shake Bites are not only virtually carb-free, they are dairy-free, paleo-compliant, and SO DELICIOUS!
Made with matcha green tea powder, gelatin, peppermint extract, and sweetened with monk fruit sweetener and vanilla protein powder, these Keto Shamrock Shake Bites are simple to make and taste just like their sugary counterparts, without all of the weird ingredients!
In this recipe, I use unflavored gelatin to give the Bites their shape. The gelatin is completely flavorless and allows for the Shamrock Shake Bites to solidify into bite-sized gummies. This is a required ingredient in this recipe and I personally prefer this brand.
- Low-Carb/Keto: Minimal carbs in these Shamrock Shake Bites (0.3g net carbs per serving), unlike that of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake. Even a small sized McDonald’s Shamrock Shake has a whopping 74g carbs!
- Paleo: This recipe is made with clean, paleo-compliant ingredients (free from gluten, grains, dairy, or soy).
- Dairy-Free: Almond milk is utilized in this recipe in place of traditional dairy milk. To make this recipe nut-free, coconut milk can be substituted for almond milk.
One Keto Shamrock Shake Bite is only 0.3 grams net carbs!
