Who doesn't love all things green for St. Patrick's Day? Green pancakes, green beer, green eggs and ham? Luckily, making some of your favourite foods green, is also an easy way to get some extra vitamins and nutrients!
Even better? You can get this easily on the go to satisfy all (well, most) of your St. Paddy's day needs with a green smoothie!
Check out these 5 green smoothies you can grab across most of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland that will help fuel your St. Paddy's day!
1. Freshii: Green Smoothie
- Coconut water
- Tropical juices
Why we love this? Coconut water helps to increase your electrolytes. Paired with the cucumber, this is one hydrating smoothie (making this ideal for that post-St. Paddy's day headache you might be dealing with).
2. Whole Foods: Kickstarter
- Orange juice
- Spicy turmeric
Why we love this? The addition of these toasty spices like turmeric, ginger, and cayenne will make a smoothie on a cold day a little more delicious! Our tip, ask to add avocado to make it thicker!
3. Juicery Co.
- Dandelion greens
- Collard greens
- Green kale
- Green apple
Why we love this? While this isn't a smoothie, the ingredients in this cold-pressed juice couldn't be missed–especially if you're looking for something to cure the effects of your other green drinks from the day before. The bitter greens like dandelion, collard greens, kale, and cilantro are all great detoxifiers, while the ginger helps to soothe an upset stomach and the cucumber and celery will help to re-hydrate you!
