Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day better than green, mint-flavored milk, which is likely the idea behind TruMoo’s bright-hued Naturally Flavored Mint Vanilla milk.

Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day better than green, mint-flavored milk, which is likely the idea behind TruMoo’s bright-hued Naturally Flavored Mint Vanilla milk. MMMmmm, minty fresh … milk.

The 1 percent low-fat milk, available as a limited-edition flavor, isn’t quite as decadent as it sounds. According to the label, which features a jaunty leprechaun hat and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the flavored milk contains no high-fructose corn syrup and 130 calories per serving. TruMoo — a Dean Foods brand whose signature product is low-fat, low-sugar, high-fructose-corn-syrup-free chocolate milk targeted to health-minded families — also boasts that the green milk contains “8 essential nutrients.” So there’s that.

Of course, the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day are famously a happy time for fans of mint milk shakes. You can make your own deliciously refreshing St. Paddy’s Day mint shake using this Food Network Kitchen recipe. It’s so good you may want to pinch yourself.
