Are you feeling lucky???
Every St. Patrick's Day, I am inspired to make a green drink. Last year was green mimosas, but this year I was craving something a little healthier. This is not a typical Shamrock Shake, which is usually made with ice cream (although I might need to make one now... stay tuned!). Instead, this is a healthy green smoothie that everyone will love!
Whether you’re looking for a yummy green smoothie for yourself or want to make a special St. Patrick’s Day drink for your friends or family, this is a tasty, healthy treat!
Full of fiber, nutrients, and protein, this smoothie is a great start or end to the day. To make it really feel like a shamrock smoothie, I added peppermint extract – but feel free to omit it if you’d like. You could also top this with whipped cream to make it a special dessert drink, or add Bailey’s Irish Crème for an adult beverage!
I added a serving of protein powder to my smoothie to make it not only delicious but also well-rounded nutritionally.
Makes 2 servings
2 cups spinach
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen berries (I used raspberries)
2 cups almond milk
½ tsp peppermint extract (substitute with vanilla if you would like)
1 - 2 servings of your favorite protein powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until ingredients are incorporated, about 1 minute. Enjoy!
