This rockin’ green smoothie was the perfect way to start off an all-things-green St. Patrick’s Day!
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup packed spinach
- 10 mint leaves
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup ice
- Peel and pit the avocado, and peel the banana.
- Combine the avocado and banana in a blender with the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth.
When you shop for the smoothie ingredients, throw in a little Irish scavenger hunt – we looked for potatoes, oats, cabbage, soda bread, and other traditional favorites.
You can also teach your kids a little about traditional Irish symbols, like the shamrock or the claddagh ring.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from these two little leprechauns!
