Kale Smoothie – the Irish Hippie Drink of the Day


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. 

Serving suggestions:

  • for a little extra green, sprinkle in some spirulina
  • for a little extra Irish, add a shot of Bushmills Irish whiskey

Erin Go Bragh!
