The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t traditionally involve drinking a green smoothie but we’re shaking things up. Chlorella is rich in chlorophyll, protein, vitamin A & B, iron, magnesium and zinc. These vitamins and minerals detoxify the body, boost the immune system, and improve digestion. Needless to say, the Shamrock Shake may be just the lucky charm you need to cure a St. Patrick’s Day hangover.
Pro tip: When working with curly kale, be sure to remove the thick stem, it makes for a bitter green smoothie.
