Happy St. Patrick’s Day: 3 Green Smoothies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I hope you all have lovely plans for the weekend. Whether or not you are into St. Patrick’s Days festivities, green smoothies are a great way to get you off to a great way to get you off to a good start. You can cram pretty much any greens and other goodies into green smoothies and thus make sure you get a healthy dose of greens in before you start your day. Plus, they look lovely and are sure to brighten up your day in more way than one.

While I believe you should have green smoothies as often as possible, they are especially beneficial before and after a night out, be it for St. Patrick’s Day or not! Alcohol is a vitamin thief, so by having a green smoothie before and after drinking, you are replacing lost nutrients and hydrate your body as alcohol is dehydrating. A short sleep is also helped best by packing as much nutrients as you can into your morning drink. That way, you can dance the Saturday away and still enjoy Sunday lunch with your family.

Below are my three favourite green smoothies. Enjoy!
