Good news, Shamrock Shake lovers—Philly’s Sip-N-Glo Juicery just debuted a healthier alternative to your Mickey D’s fave.

The Bella Vista juice cafe is now serving up a new minty smoothie just in time for St. Paddy’s day. Called the Lucky Clover, it only has five ingredients, including fresh mint leaves, raw vanilla beans, cashews, bananas and almond milk.

“But it’s not the same!” you say. I know, I know. But just in case you forgot, your good friend the Shamrock Shake isn’t doing you any favors in the calorie department, and it features a laundry list of weird ingredients, including the oh-so-green Shamrock Shake Syrup that contains color additives like Yellow 5 and Blue 1. So hey, the Lucky Clover it’s more than worth a shot, right? And who knows, you might even get lucky with this one—lame pun intended.
