When I first started my blog back in 2013, one of the things I wanted to do was share my overall wellness journey. And part of that was sharing the recipes of meals I was eating.

Somehow, that got lost in the shuffle and I only made a page of several recipes. I thought now that I am once again trying to regain my health (this time from adrenal, hormone, rosacea, and weight issues), that I would revive them and share them.

This time around, I’m sharing them as single posts and adding more of my favorite recipes as I go.

Today’s recipe is all about smoothies. Particularly, my favorite green smoothies, including a St. Patty’s Day healthy version of the Shamrock Shake.


Green Smoothie Recipe #1

              (Serves one)

I try and have one green smoothie a day, usually for lunch. This keeps me going until dinner.                                                   

  1. One frozen banana (if you don’t have any that are frozen, add a handful of ice cubes)
  2. one-two cups of organic baby spinach
  3. one organic pear, chopped
  4. about 2 cups of filtered water

place all ingredients in a blender or nutribullet (my favorite kitchen gadget!), blend, and enjoy!

Green Smoothie Recipe #2

                (Serves one)

  1. One banana (frozen or add ice cubes if no frozen bananas)
  2. one-two cups of organic baby spinach
  3. one cup of berries of choice (fresh or frozen, organic is always preferred)
  4. 2 cups of water
  5. 1/2 teaspoon of chia seeds

place all ingredients in a blender or nutribullet, blend, and enjoy!

Healthy St. Patty’s Day “Shamrock Smoothie”

I made this years ago and it was so good, I wanted to share it again – albeit a bit late to the party (true to form for me).

I know that there have been a lot of variations of the Shamrock Shake floating around on the internet and I am sure mine is similar, but I’m using what I have on hand and what I normally eat.

That being said, here is my take on a Shamrock Shake..sans the shamrock. ;-P

You will need:

( Serves 1)

1 Frozen banana

1- 2 cups organic, raw baby spinach

2 cups unsweetened almond, coconut, oat, or hemp milk

1 tbsp raw cacao powder (I like Nutiva’s Naturals)

1 packet organic stevia*

1/8 tsp pure peppermint extract

1/2 tsp chia seeds

raw cacao nibs for topping

Place all ingredients (except cacao nibs) in a blender or Nutri bullet, blend, top with cacao nibs, and enjoy!

*If you don’t like the taste of stevia, you can use sweetened almond, coconut, oat, or hemp milk.
