Green Juices and Smoothies to Kick Off St. Patrick’s Day
Tomorrow is St. Patrick ’s Day, which is the perfect excuse to whip up a packed-with-nutrients green juice or smoothie for breakfast. They may be the color of grass, but the combinations of fruits and vegetables are delicious and will leave you feeling refreshed, energized and ready to start the day.
By tossing kale or spinach into the blender or juicer, you’ll be adding a vast range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with lots of health benefits—from blood sugar regulation to healthier cardiovascular and circulatory systems. Green drinks also have high amounts of beta carotene, which have antioxidants that give your skin a healthy glow.
Try one of these recipes tomorrow morning and see how you feel!
