Shamrock Smoothie Recipe
by Lisa Suriano - March 14, 2012

This smoothie gets its green hue from a healthy dose of kale, but kids will love the sweet zing provided by the addition of vanilla yogurt and banana. It's a fun and tasty treat that's easy enough for kids to make themselves. Plus, it packs a punch of vitamin C, calcium, and other nutrients that are good for growing bodies. It's leprechaun-green color and the fact that kale is a form of cabbage also make it the perfect kid-friendly drink for St. Patrick's Day or other Irish celebrations.
