Today many people in different countries will celebrate St. Patrick’s day. This is especially big in Ireland where the roots of this celebration comes from. St. Patrick’s day celebrates the official patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. Like most holidays March 17th has been commercialized. What began as a religious feast day, has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, drinking, special foods and a whole lot of green. If you’re not looking to get into drinking and stay on a healthy track for this day, we’ve got you covered!
As a tribute to the Irish spirit we have put together a trio of green smoothies.
Sláinte mhaith!! (meaning “good health” in Irish)
