St Patrick’s Day: Green Smoothie

March 17, 2015 in Recipes

I love St. Patrick’s Day. Growing up, my parents made it so fun. Leprechauns would come and leave footprints all over the floor, use our potty, and drink our milk! The best is that they would leave a hidden pot of gold somewhere full of treats. It’s like Christmas really. 😉

I thought it would be a perfect day to share my favorite GREEN smoothie! We are a big smoothie family and seriously drink these at least 4 times a week. I have a picky little eater who won’t eat anything different, but he slurps these suckers DOWN. And it’s healthy, so I’m a happy mama over here!

Here’s my recipe:

1 yogurt (5oz)

1/2 banana

1 C. orange juice or milk (if you are needing more iron, do orange juice because citrus helps absorb the iron from the spinach)

2 Tbsp flax seed

1 Tbsp chia seed

1 tsp. vanilla

1-2 big handfuls of frozen fruit

2 big handfuls of spinach

***TIP: Something I learned recently, is to buy a big bag of Spinach (I buy mine from Costco) and then stick it in the freezer so that it lasts longer and keeps your smoothies cold and fresh.

What are some of your favorite green smoothies?
