Happy St. PEA-trick’s Day?

You guys already know I’m a bit LOT strange…but I swear I’m not completely off my rocker with this one! Actually, this combination has been swimming around in my head for weeks now…ever since the lovely Davida announced she would be hosting a green food linkup for St. Patrick’s Day. Hey, if that girl can post a dish featuring Brussels sprouts AND blueberries together, then I think my little smoothie deserves a second look…and put those eyebrows down, would ya?!

Give PEAS a chance?

This smoothie has got it ALL! It’s got veggies…it’s got fruit…it’s got healthy fats and plant-based proteins…the only thing it hasn’t got? Booze…but hey, feel free to spike it if you’re feeling froggy? 😉 Haha, get it? Frogs are…green? Ok, never mind. Moving ON! But seriously, it IS a holiday after all and who am I, a woman of Irish roots, to deny someone a little midday imbibing? As far as running into your boss at work later? Well…

Sweet Pea Smoothie 1

Let the luck of the Irish be with you!

So basically, this smoothie is the brain child of my Spring Pea Dip and my Vegan Beautifying Beet Smoothie…combining frozen peas with banana for a surprisingly sweet flavor and then adding tofu for extra protein and avocado to bump up the creaminess factor! So basically, this smoothie makes me…a genius!

Let’s face it, we Irish aren’t exactly known for our modesty! 😉
