Contrary to most St. Patrick’s Day festivities I’ve been privy to, we’re steering away from shamrocks and ale and making a B-line for healthy greens this Wednesday. Not because I’m a prude who doesn’t like cabbage or has nightmares about biting leprechauns, but because I’m nursing a serious sore throat and muscles that feel stiff and achy. Maybe it’s “the rheumatism.” Or maybe I’m desperate for a chocolate-shake IV drip followed by a Nigh-Quil induced sleep. I’ll take my pick.
In the name of good health [that is, wishing for it], I’m sharing my new favorite recipe that is as delicious as it is green. You might even be able to get your kids to enjoy this for St. Patrick’s Day!
Combine the following into a reliable blender:
1 ripe banana
1 wedge of fresh pineapple
1 whole kiwi, washed and with ends removed, but with skin on [Vitamin C]
roughly 3/4 C water
squirt of Agave Nectar to sweeten
generous handful of spinach leaves [organic best]
>>Blend until smooth, and enjoy!! It’s truly delicious!
