“Shamrock Smoothie” – Recipe Of The Week

Get into the spirit of St. Paddy’s this year and celebrate with a green smoothie!  Forget that “Shamrock Shake” and replace it with our version! A delicious blend of Romaine, Cucumber, Avocado, Banana and Coconut Water.

Avocados are densely packed with vitamin E and healthy fats and give this smoothie a delicious creaminess.  Cucumbers and Bananas contain a good deal of potassium.  And Romaine is a leafy green which scores high marks on Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutrient Density scale.

I honestly can’t get enough of this smoothie. It is So Green, So Good and So Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day — Slainte!
