This post is sponsored by Almond Breeze Almond Milk.
^^ Â Youâ€™ve read above that this post is a sponsored one. As my day job gets more demanding and I choose to balance my nights with fun and relaxation instead of adding more responsibility through blogging or volunteer work, I am much more picky about the brands I choose to work with. As someone who is largely dairy-free (save for great cheese), I usually have a container of Almond Breeze in my fridge, so this is always a natural partnership.
You guys know I rarely do recipes, but in honor of St. Patrickâ€™s Day, one of my favorite holidays, I put together a smoothie recipe for you guys based on my favorite smoothie from Terri,Â a vegan shop next to my gym.
Green Power Smoothie
I love green things every day, but especially on St. Patrickâ€™s Day! I tend to need some solid food, like a piece of toast, on the side of my smoothie, so I prefer to keep my smoothie slightly lower in calories to make up for its sidekick.
– 1/2 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
– 1/2 cup ice
– 1/2 pear
– 1/2 banana
– 1 big handful of kale
– 1 tablespoon almond butter
My pint glass is from the NYC Tri. I much prefer a green smoothie mustache to a Hudson River one!
What green foods did you celebrate St. Paddyâ€™s Day with?Â
