While on my morning run around the Rose Bowl today I noticed more than a few people wearing green. Then it hit me ~ St. Patrick’s Day. Oh crap! I look down at my orange shirt, wondering if people think I’m trying to offend the Irish with my Protestant colors. Note to the Irish ~ I didn’t know what day it was!
To make up for my morning faux pas I ran home and made this drink in honor of all my Irish friends, most of whom lean toward the hippie side.
It’s a simple mix of:
- 1 cup kale
- 1 banana
- 1 cup orange juice
- 3 ice cubes (not pictured)
Throw in a blender.
Mix. Pour. Drink.
- for a little extra green, sprinkle in some spirulina
- for a little extra Irish, add a shot of Bushmills Irish whiskey
Erin Go Bragh!
