Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

Funny thing happened today on my Facebook personal page. A memory popped up from 6 years ago where I was asking my family and friends for any suggestions on which blender/juicer/smoothie maker they would recommend, because my last two blenders quit working in less than a year.  

I must have got an overwhelming response to the Vitamix, because that next week, I went out to my local Costco and purchased a Vitamix.  6 Years later and it is still going strong and just this morning I used it to make one of my favorite smoothies.  So in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to share the recipe with you.

St. Patrick's Day Smoothie

St. Patrick's Day Smoothie

Loaded with nutrients from fresh veggies and fruit makes this green smoothie good any day of the year.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of Spinach
  • 1/4 of a Cucumber
  • 1 stalk of celery¬†
  • 1 Cup of frozen Banana
  • 1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 Cup of Water

Instructions

Add all the ingredients to a blender, mix, and serve.

This Green Smoothie is full of vitamins and nutrients that our bodies need.

Spinach: Spinach is a great source of potassium, magnesium, fiber, and Vitamin B6.

Celery: Celery provides lots of vitamin and minerals including Vitamin K, and Vitamin A.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are a great source of hydration and contain important electrolytes.

Strawberries: Strawberries are an excellent source of Magnese, Vitamin C, Folate, and Potassium.

Bananas: Bananas are healthy and delicious and contain many important nutrients such as Potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and Magnesium

Because during these times I realize that having fresh vegetables on hand might not be that simple. Right after I get home from the store, I take all my fresh veggies and make up smoothie packets and freeze them. That way you can not only enjoy a nice cool drink, all you have to do is dump the smoothie packet into your blender and add water.

Enjoy!
