Leprechaun Mint Smoothie ~ Shamrock Shakes Healthier Cousin

Leprechaun Mint Smoothie ~ Shamrock Shakes healthier cousin

Today is Leprechaun Day at J's school. Since St. Patrick's Day is on a Saturday this year, that is how they are celebrating the Wearing of the Green.  So, this morning J decided he wanted something green for breakfast, just to get himself in the mood.  Fair enough.  I made him his smoothie while he was getting dressed.  I slipped in some frozen spinach, (wink wink) when he wasn't looking.  He didn't say how I could make it green.  heehee  I also decided to add a little mint extract, just to give it a hint of mint.  I'm calling it the healthier cousin to the Shamrock Shake.  It certainly made my little Leprechaun very happy
