St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and it got me thinking about all the fun (and green) treats that a lot of parents make for their kids. I mean, who doesn’t love a good green-themed meal?
But this St. Patrick's Day, instead of going for the green-dyed milk, why not try something different and make a healthy green smoothie that you and your family can enjoy?
Studies have shown that consuming leafy green vegetables can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, and a simple, delicious smoothie is a great way to get your daily dose of greens.
Today I’m sharing 30 (yes, 30!) different green smoothie recipes that are quick and easy recipes for the whole family. I figure one of them is bound to peak your interest and impress your family’s taste buds.
These simple recipes are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber to help keep your health and diet on track. Using fresh produce, like kiwi, spinach, and avocado, instead of artificial dyes means you’re already on the right track! Whether you're looking for sweet, savory, or something in between, there's sure to be a smoothie that meets your tastes.
As a holistic nutritionist, I think a delicious and healthy green smoothie can be a new and fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I know my two boys love them! These smoothies are bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, so they will have your family feeling energized throughout the day.
