Did you know that St. Patrick’s Day is not just about beer and obnoxious green decor, but it’s actually rooted in tradition? The holiday goes back to the 17th century. While nowadays it may be about beer, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a festive St. Paddy’s Day healthy shake, right? Think of it as a warm-up beverage, like stretching for the stomach.
While this shake may be a warm-up beverage for you, it’s the perfect breakfast for the kiddos too. It’s tasty, healthy and easy to make. Most importantly, it’s a pleasant shade of green.
