Green Smoothies and Biking Leprechauns

St Patrick'sThis March our office, Pacific Cycle Inc., has been focusing on nutrition and what it means to eat and drink for a healthy body and mind. So what better way to combine healthy objectives and a day devoted to green, then to make a healthy green St. Patrick’s day smoothie and then take a ride on a green Schwinn!

They can also be very simple and cheap to make. All you need is a blender, some fruits and veggies and an open mind. You can include a wide variety of ingredient into your green smoothie, but my favorites always include spinach for the benefit of the added iron. Check out one of my favorite recipes below:

Ingredients:

1 Small Frozen Banana (you can also add 1 cup of ice if you want to use a fresh banana)

1-2 Cups of Baby Spinach

1 Tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter

1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (you can use regular milk as well)

1/4 Cup plain or vanilla Greek Yogurt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients into the blender and continue to blend until smooth!

Get out and Ride!
