Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Although I am not Irish, I still like to enjoy the parade in Dallas and flaunt my natural red hair like I am. In honor of this green holiday, I am sharing a roundup of some of my favorite green smoothies. Green smoothies are typically made with spinach, kale, cucumber, and green apple. However, these green smoothies are different from what you are used to. They have all natural ingredients that give it that green flavor and health benefits too.
Mint chocolate chip shake
Who doesn’t love healthy chocolate and mint? I share a bit of history on mint chocolate and how I make this shake extra creamy. Peppermint oil, cacao, and homemade fudge are just a few ingredients that make up this healthy shake. Get the recipe here.
This recipe requires several ingredients, but the star of the show is spirulina, a detoxifying algae. Cacao, dates, and cinnamon sweeten it up. The Tone it Up girls know how to make superfood packed smoothies and this one doesn’t disappoint. Get the recipe here.
One of my favorite local bloggers, Rebecca with Happily the Hicks, shares this delicious green smoothie recipe along with tips on what to eat while training for a half marathon. Spinach gives this smoothie the green color, but it is full of fruit and yogurt. Get the recipe here.
Ginger banana smoothie
Pink grapefruit green smoothie
Kari put a unique spin on the tropical green smoothie by adding grapefruit. Both the pineapple and the grapefruit even out the flavors from the greens, so you forget you are drinking spinach. This is a green smoothie even your kids will like. Get the recipe here.
