Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a Green Smoothie!

This is how I do St. Patrick's Day. Simple, healthy and the kids love it! I love that you can pack in a ton of greens into a smoothie and kids don't even know they are in there. Well, my kids do, but they are a little strange and sometimes eat spinach plain while we pile it on our turkey sandwiches! If your kid hates green veggies, this is an easy way to still get them the great nutrients.

Green Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 an orange

  • 1/4 c. orange juice

  • 3/4 c. fresh spinach

  • 1/4 c. greek yogurt

  • 1/2 a banana

  • 1/4 c. frozen peaches

  • 4-5 ice cubes

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth! By the way, I never measure anything. I just throw it in there, so this is a guess on amounts. HA! I do so many variations of this smoothie every week. I'll alternate adding frozen berries, fresh strawberries, kale, lime juice, and even substitute the orange juice for coconut water. Who doesn't love having a smoothie for breakfast?

And who am I kidding about my kids only having a green smoothie today? They are having a green shamrock pancake party with friends for lunch! :) I did the green eggs and ham thing once or twice but eating green eggs kind of grosses me out. So we stick with the green smoothie and pancake plan.
