Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m celebrating with this coconut mango banana spinach smoothie. This is my favorite green energy smoothie.
I’m thrilled my mum, dad, sister, and niece are staying with me so we can celebrate St Patrick’s Day together.
My mother is part Irish. Her family are descendants of the McDermotts, Sullivans and O’Learys. We are very proud of our Irish heritage and milk it for all it’s worth.
St Patrick’s Day was originally a religious holiday. But let’s be honest, to any self-respecting hedonist, it’s fondly embraced as a “feast and drinking day”, and a golden invitation to get over refreshed with irreverent indulgence under the guise of national pride.
But, really, every day is a green day for me. I start every day with a green smoothie, and this coconut mango spinach banana smoothie is my favorite blend.
This mango banana spinach smoothie is my go-to introductory smoothie for newbies because it’s sweet and delicious, and if you closed your eyes you’d never know it contained leafy greens. The mild flavor of spinach is perfect for greenophobes as its so easily masked with sweet fruits.
I intend to drown my sorrows in a few gallons of this mango banana spinach smoothie after I drop my sister and my little niece off at the airport tonight. However, if the green smoothie doesn’t do the trick, I’m heading down to the Tam O’Shanter with mum and dad to sing and dance with our Irish comrades.
