Shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold, seas of green clothing and various beverages of the same color: whether you are 100 percent or 0.1 percent Irish, many of us enjoy partaking in St. Patrick’s Day traditions and festivities.

If you’re looking to keep the healthy habits from the beginning of the year in check, the St. Patrick’s Day Shake is a tasty treat that will keep your Irish eyes smiling. Featuring Halo Top ice cream, this lucky drink would have pleased St. Patrick himself.  

Halo Top, the suggested ice cream in the St. Patrick’s Day Shake, offers great flavor while promoting nutrition that is more angelic than standard ice cream. This pot of gold is no myth; it’s low in both sugar and calories yet high in protein.

How does it keep the flavor without the calories? Halo Top uses stevia, a natural plant-based sweetener, to replace most of the sugar in its tasty concoctions. Find Halo Top in the HealthMarket.

Make the St. Patrick’s Day Shake for yourself, make a large batch to share or turn it into an ice cream punch to serve at your St. Patrick’s Day get-together. Serve it to kids — they won’t even know. Want to do something special for your kids on St. Patrick’s Day? Pour the St. Patrick’s Day shake into popsicle molds and freeze for a festive after-school snack. No matter how you choose to enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day Shake, it’s sure to bring some luck to your day.
