St. Patrick’s Day Smoothie Recipe: Sneak In Those Green Veggies!

stpat

Your kids will be expecting a few green things on St. Patrick’s Day. Why not make them a GREEN smoothie (jam packed with healthy veggies)??

Omega Juicers sent over a few recipes and I thought I’d share them with you. I LOVE this first one – The Leaping Leprechaun.

  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup of spinach leaves
  • 1 cup water

 

Combine all ingredients into an Omega Blender. Blend until really smooth, not still grainy or chunky or with bits of leaves floating about. It can be thick, as you can always thin with water, but it needs to be smooth.  This should take only a couple of minutes. Blend until the greens are so pulverized that they are no longer visible other than infusing your smoothie with a beautiful green color.

Luck of the Parsley
