I know that St. Patrick’s Day isn’t typically associated with green smoothies and juices, but I think maybe it’s time we changed the tradition. If you are one of those people heading out to a weekend celebration with corned beef, Irish bread, cabbage, potatoes, or beer, I hope that you’ll down one of these green drinks before embarking on the festivities. I promise your body will thank you later!
