Happy Monday! It's the week of St. Patty's day so let all the green foods commence. I am part Irish, but never got into St. Patty's day. I mean what's the point? Let alone SO.MUCH.GREEN.FOOD. The fact that people want to drink green beer grosses me out. Not to mention all the green food coloring that's used to make green eggs and ham and everything in between.
I will happily stick to naturally green foods and green smoothies are my jam. Nothing is worse than green smoothies with chunks of spinach or kale still in them. I had a semi traumatic experience with chunks and have been on a bit of a smoothie break, but wanted to jump back into the smoothie world. When Dream team asked if I'd like to try some of their dairy free yogurts I jumped on the chance. I will do a full review, but I have to say hands down the BEST dairy free yogurt I've had, and no I am NOT paid to say that.
Let's talk about this smoothie ok? It's spinach and kale free, but 100% naturally green. Totally perfect for St. Patrick's day!! The green apple gives it a tart flavor, you can't taste the avocado it just makes it nice and thick, and the honey gives it a hint of sweetness. Ditch the food coloring this St. Patty's day and go green the natural way!
