I’m sure you’re familiar with a certain, limited edition shake that appears annually in March. Don’t be fooled by its attractive green color! Unlike my Shamrock Smoothie, that ice cream shake is void of any nutritious greens. It instead fills your body with processed sugars and added colors. Skip the drive-through, and make this delicious, healthy smoothie at home.
This Shamrock Smoothie contains essential nutrients such as iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. The spinach lends excellent detoxifying powers with chlorophyll and phytonutrients, and bananas are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They’re also the perfect way to satisfy your sugar cravings. These nourishing ingredients are blended with vanilla paleo protein and full-fat coconut milk to add a creamy texture, and keep you full for the whole day!
To add a refreshing and delightful twist to your morning smoothie or afternoon snack, I added two drops of peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is known to ease digestive discomfort such as gas, bloating, and indigestion so that you feel as free and fresh as wild peppermint.
Anyone who sees’s you with this smoothie will be green with envy. Enjoy!
