Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Some people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green, going out for Irish food or having an Irish coffee. Others may enjoy a green beverage such as a green beer, green martini, or margarita. In this blog, I thought I would give you another green beverage option, which is healthier. In fact, this beverage is packed with plenty of antioxidants and healthful nutrients your body craves. I have been enjoying this juice all winter and believe it has helped me stay well this cold season. Give it a try if you would like a burst of energy for your day and some morning sunshine!

Add all ingredients to Ninja or Vitamix Blender or blender cup. Blend on high speed until thoroughly blended and mixed. Serve and enjoy. Recipe makes 1 serving.
