I hope you’re all wearing green out there while reading this because I have to warn you, I’m one of those annoying people who pinch others on St. Patrick’s day. I mean, why not? Especially if you’re on my bad side I now have the perfect excuse to pinch you without being the weirdo who randomly pinches people for no reason.
Okay ANYWAYS, now that my pinching rant is over, HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVERYBODY! And I’m readyyyyyyyyy, to parrrrtayyyyyyy (this is a Bridesmaids reference for all my movie buffs out there). Except if you know me you know I’m just kidding because my partying today will consist of some stair running, beeb’s hockey game, and then maybe a bubble bath with a green bath bomb because I’m festive as hell.
Oh, and it will consist of this super festive and delicious and nutritious and amazing GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL!!!! Woooot wooottttt. Yes people. This baby has it all. Everything you could possibly need to survive a day/night of actual partying (which although I won’t be doing, I would be perfectly prepared for it). I’m talking mango, avocado, spinach, banana, and coconut milk with all the toppings, of course. And ya know what you get from all those beautiful ingredients mixed into one delicious package? HEALTH. You get health. In many ways, shapes, and forms. I’ll expand.
Mangos: antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and alkalizing acids.
Avocados: contain almost 20 vitamins and minerals, fiber, folate, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids (healthy fats).
Raw Spinach: niacin, zinc, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, protein, and vitamins A, C, E, and K.
Bananas: fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, folate, and iron.
Coconut Milk: lauric acid (healthy fat), manganese, protein, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and potassium.
Chia Seeds: protein, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and small amounts of other vitamins and minerals.
SO. This is one kick-butt smoothie bowl in the health and taste departments. It pretty much has it all folks. So give your body a little health boost now so it can prepare itself for the damage about to be done later when the partying begins. Oh, and ENJOY YOURSELVES!!!! Happy St. Patty’s Day!!!!
