St. Patty’s Day Green Smoothie

St Pattys Day Green SmoothieIn celebration of St. Patty’s Day I whipped up a nice, big, creamy green smoothie. Don’t get a shamrock shake from McDonald’s or guzzle of a bunch of green beer, go the healthy route and drink a delicious green smoothie that will leave you feeling terrific afterwards.

If you can’t find enough four leaf clovers to green your smoothie, use whatever you have on hand, whether it be spinach, kale, lettuce, dandelion, beet greens, or a combination.

Have fun with this smoothie and add in whatever else sounds good and you have on hand. Now for the St. Patty’s Day green smoothie recipe. Enjoy!
