Drink Your Greens: St. Patrick’s Day Green “Milk” Shake

Top of the morning to ya! This is how my Dad would always wake my sister and I up on St. Patrick’s Day. Since it’s the day we all wear green and green is my favorite color (obviously ;) ).  I thought I would share with you a delicious green “milk” shake recipe. Lets get your day started on a healthy note before you enjoy some celebrating and partying later today!

I LOVE starting my day off with a green smoothie. This is one of my go to recipes after a yoga or Pilates class because it’s full of protein and potassium (to help soothe sore muscles). 

St. Patrick’s Day Green “Milk” Shake Ingredients

  • 1 Banana (frozen is best). It is the key to making your green smoothie into a dessert like “milk” shake.
  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of chia seed
  • 2 big handfuls of organic spinach or your choice of greens
  • A few ice cubes

Directions

Add all ingredients into a high speed blender in the order listed above and blend for about one minute. Pour and enjoy all the green creamy goodness. I hope this helps you feel in the spirit of wearing and being green!

*If you don’t have a high speed blender I recommend cutting the banana into thin slices before you freeze it. You will also need to blend it longer then one minute.

I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and show some extra love to the color green.

Peace & Love,

Alyson
