St. Patrick’s Day Banana and Kale Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everybody! This fun filled holiday is an excuse to wear green, drink beer, (OR a green smoothie), and celebrate! Every year my mother always puts stickers on her face, wears green everything, and makes green jello shots. She is very festive. This year I am celebrating by painting my nails green with the Irish flag, and sipping on a nice green smoothie.

2014-03-14 002 2014-03-14 015I have been experimenting more and more with green smoothies and I think I have fallen in love. I can’t believe I was ever scared to try them and thought they were gross just because they are green!? That is so colour prejudice. Let me just tell you, if this is what is stopping you from trying a green smoothie, wait no more. They are so delicious and so worth it, and after a while, you find the colour actually pretty.
