Friday is St. Patrick's Day and I have been busy helping my mom prepare for our Second Annual Ir(ish) Party at her house! We love all-things St. Patrick's Day, even more now that we learned that my mom and aunt are half-Irish thanks to one of those cool DNA tests... My sister and I will be up before the sun Friday morning to go stand in line for the Kegs & Eggs Party at Molly Malone's (be looking for a vlog about our shenanigans on my YouTube Channel.)
And in keeping with all-things green this week, I got inspired to create a Shamrock Smoothie recipe. I knew I wanted to use a little turmeric (which is a peppery root in the ginger family with amazing health benefits) but I wanted to balance the flavor - and color (turmeric is BRIGHT ORANGE and can actually stain your skin when peeling & chopping) - so I added kiwi for sweetness. A dash of cayenne & black peppers give the smoothie a kick.
I added everything to my blender with 1 Cup of Water & 1 Cup of Ice and blended until smooth. It was delicious!!!! Please try it out & let me know what you think! HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!!
