Since this past Monday was St. Patrick’s day, I decided to have my own little commemoration despite the fact that I have no Irish in me whatsoever. But hey, nothing wrong with getting into the spirit of things right? I did not wear any shamrock nor was I downing any bubbly Irish brew – but I did ‘Go Green’. Unlike a few years ago when I was pub-hopping in my ‘Kiss me I’m Irish’ tee just for some kicks, this year was a little – well a lot- different. It was still very much green only it took place in my kitchen with me in an apron.
I finally perfected a fussy husband-approved Super Smoothie that’s so good for your inner body, outer glow and your touchy tastebuds. I’m personally not a big fan of veggies in my smoothie but this one taste just like pudding I promise! Let me list out the fabulous benefits of the main ingredients so you’ll understand why this shake is so awesome and especially Glow-rious for your skin!
