Luck of the Irish Smoothie

Luck of the Irish Smoothie
By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Ireland is a beautiful country with lush, rolling green hills.  Thanks to all that soft rain we see the vibrancy and gorgeous green that this country is so famous for.  In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day and celebrating our family’s ancestors, I’ve created a luscious green smoothie to energize your day and keep you hydrated.  With omega-3 rich hemp, potassium, magnesium, natural sodium-rich coconut water and maple syrup, this smoothie helps provide nutrients to power through your morning or afternoon.
