St Patty Cure



What A Gorgeous Color.

St Patty's Day is really just like any other Thursday night in college. Or Friday night. Or Saturday. But you need 'the morning after' nourishment, right?

Monday morning eventually arrives in full swing. So, you might as well be prepared!

Aside from being trendy right now, smoothies really are a great meal substitute if the ingredients are good-for-you. The recipe below can be used for any on-the-go breakfast, pre- or post-workout routine, snack or however you see fit.

Head over to any health or kitchen store and buy yourself a mini-protein shake blender: single serving, easy to clean and requires minimal shelf space. Try the recipe below. Experiment. Possibilities are endless. Other recipes will follow.

Tip:
If you like smoothies, bulk up on seasonal fruits by pre-cutting and storing them in zip-lock baggies in the freezer!
