To celebrate the upcoming St Patricks Day festivities, here at Voltage Sport HQ we decided it would be fun to create a supercharged, super healthy green Shamrock Smoothie packed full of essential vitamins and minerals and dedicate it to our Irish friends. This smoothie is simple to make and tastes delicious.
Living in England we don't particularly celebrate St Patricks Day however, we know plenty of people do, so we wanted to create something special for the occasion. The only time we have celebrated the Patron Saint of Ireland properly is whilst on holiday in Barbados, we had a great time with lots of locals and Irish Americans who were partying on the island. We don't need asking twice to have fun and let our hair down so we joined in and had a blast. In England, we celebrate St George's Day but it is certainly not with the same vigour and enthusiasm as the Irish.
We must admit we don't drink too many green juices or smoothies, its generally the look of a green drink rather than the taste that puts us off! However this smoothie has persuaded us to reach for the green stuff more regularly, it helps that this tastes amazing! This green smoothie we have made is nice and sweet and there is no overpowering taste of the spinach which is one of the main ingredients in there. This is certainly a drink we will make again and again!
For our protein kick we used Arbonne's Vanilla Protein Powder, which is vegan and dairy free. It also tastes delicious on its own!
- 1 Banana
- 1 Handful of Spinach
- 3 Medjool Dates (pitted)
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
- 200ml Water
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend together.
If you are celebrating St Patricks Day have a great time - You may need this the morning after to help with your hangover and get those essential vitamins and minerals back in your body!
Even if you're not celebrating, give this recipe a try and let us know what you think. When you make it share your photo on Instagram and tag us @voltagesport #voltagesport.
