St. Patrick’s Day Green Smoothie

I honor of the upcoming holiday try this healthy take on McDonald’s Shamrock Shake via Cupcakes & Kale Chips blog. Adding greens to smoothies works nutritional wonders for your body. They improve blood circulation, help with digestion, boost your energy, strengthen your immune system and much more. Don’t be disturbed by the green color, it still tastes great!
