St. Patty's Day Shamrock Shake

St. Patty's Day Shamrock Shake
Contributor

This St. Patrick’s Day, I plan to not only wear some greens, but eat them, too! This creamy green smoothie is one of my very favorites because it is nourishing enough to serve as a healthy holiday breakfast, but tastes so decadent that it could easily work as a festive dessert at a St. Patty’s Day party! It’s loaded with my detoxifying Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend, nutrient-rich greens, potassium-packed bananas, refreshing peppermint, and healthy fats from cashews and coconut so you will feel satisfied and energized for hours!
