Instead of a Shamrock Shake…

try another green drink.

In the interest of keeping things real, St. Patrick’s Day has never really been my thing.  It kind of sneaks in between Valentine’s and Easter.  Shamrock Shakes and green beer don’t really hold much appeal for me.  And I haven’t seen green wine anywhere.

But since I do enjoy writing some seasonal posts, I decided to round up some other green drinks…

Drinks that not only taste great, but also support glowing skin and a fit body.  Because you totally deserve to look and feel amazing.

A few months ago I posted a matcha latte that doesn’t just taste great, it’s contains coconut oil and collagen peptides for gorgeous skin and a healthy metabolism.  Matcha, the powdered leaves of green tea, is an amazing source of antioxidants.  It also provides L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes sustained energy and calm alertness.  Pretty skin and more energy?  I’m in!

Here’s the recipe:  Magical Matcha

If you’re craving a shake, my go-to is the Vanilla Coconut Collagen Fuel from Primal Kitchen Foods.  It has a really pronounced vanilla flavor, and you get all the goodness of the collagen and coconut.  To make it green, just blend in matcha or a handful of spinach.

Here’s a recent post describing how I made it with matcha:  matcha + vanilla + collagen =

If you want to get a little more hardcore with your green drink, you can do what I do most mornings.  I throw some fresh greens (organic spinach, kale, or whatever I have on hand) in my Vitamix with a whole peeled lemon and sometimes a chunk of ginger.  I add water to about half way up and then blend on high.  This tastes very green and tart, but it’s a great way to get some veggies in first thing.

So there you have it…some healthy alternatives to the Shamrock Shake or green beer.  And if it’s not St. Patrick’s Day without your shake or beer, totally cool.

Because being happy, healthy and hot is all about enjoying life.  And one crappy shake or a few colored beers aren’t going to ruin everything.

Can my green drinks help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Hell yeah they can!

You’ll feel happy drinking something that tastes great and is made with healthy ingredients.  These drinks can give you better skin, increased energy and even a better body.  And a girl with a fit body, pretty skin and tons of energy is always hot!
