Okay, I must admit something: I don't know the first thing about St Patrick's Day. I know that it involves all things green..but other than that.. nothing much.
Also, I have pinched many a time on the day of. I don't know what's up with that.
But give me any excuse to make food? I am SO in.
I remember when I was taking first year French back in university: the day after St Patrick's day, I was the only person who showed up!! Maybe if my fellow classmates have sipped on this drink in the morning, they would have felt better.
I was really sceptical before I had my first green smoothie... I mean.. they are green. Not the most appetizing color. But TRUST ME! Coming from someone who does't really consume vegetables all too often (I am trying to change, I promise!) this is an awesome way to sneak some in without even noticing. And you can't even taste the spinach!
So whether it's on St Patrick's Day or the morning after, I do hope you try this smoothie. And happy St Patrick's Day.... whatever it is.
