Smile, YOU are on candid camera! Just kidding, it’s that yearly festivous Green Day and I decided to make a tiny little change… you guessed it, I created an Orange Smoothie. There is, however, something green in this sexy treat (so no pinches), and it packs a nutritious punch to boot. As a matter of fact, I think I’ve got a decent veggie intake with this one 🙂
WARNING: a small history lesson approaching, fasten your seat belts… Many of us will don the color green to celebrate our Irish heritage (feigned or real) on this day; however, did you know that St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish back in the day? see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick’s_Day (explaining St. Patrick’s Day in the most educational and informationally correct of manners 😀 ). So, while you and your friends are out there enjoying the day’s favorite beverage, take a second to think about the true meaning of St. Patricks Day… just kidding, again… enjoy!
At last, I bet you are wondering what is going on inside this Orange ‘Splosion… I started with some, you guessed it, carrots! Next, I threw in a plump organic tomato, 1/2 of a big fat cucumber, one ginormous red delicious apple, one banana, and some water (in its frozen and liquid form).
