So… do you need to detox after your St. Patrick’s Day Pint? (I’m pretty sure everyone and their mom… except for me and my mom… were at the Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Westport this year. Traffic was horrendous!) We’ve been blessed with sunshine and warm spring weather this year, so it’s time to celebrate the season with something yummy and green!
Here’s my new and improved Special St. Patrick’s Day Green Smoothie recipe. (Highly recommended for detoxing if you had one too many pints of something else on St. Patty’s Day.)
- Juice from 1/2 Lime
- 3 Celery Stalks (cut into pieces)
- 1/2 Cup Honeydew Melon Pieces
- 4 Cups Spinach
- 12 oz Coconut Water
Nothing to it! Throw the greens into the blender (I use my Vittamix for smoothies and juices), followed by celery, melon, spinach and lime juice. Pour in 12 oz coconut water, blend on high for a minute. Pour into a frosty mug and enjoy!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
