Recipe: Green Machine Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Smoothie Saturday (second edition)! Of course, today’s smoothie had to be green. Green smoothies are a trend that doesn’t seem to be letting up, but I think there is a delicate balance between liquid vegetables and a tasty smoothie. In this recipe, the pineapple and ginger offset the bitterness of the greens, so it’s ultra-refreshing and nutrient-packed.

Tip: if you like your smoothies extra cold, add a handful of ice to the blender.
