While I love to celebrate holidays with a good cupcake like my Lucky Charms cupcakes, sometimes I want a lighter option. A fun St. Patrick’s Day smoothie is sweet, festive and a bit lighter than a baked good.
Don’t get me wrong, my first choice is always a cupcake but this St. Patrick’s Day smoothie is yummy too and the perfect addition to a St. Patrick’s day party or dinner. This fun St. Patrick’s Day smoothie has a fun kick courtesy of a little bubbly fizz from 7UP.
I like to keep sliced frozen bananas in the fridge for smoothies, so we always cut up bananas that have turned too ripe and store them in a plastic bag in the freezer. If you leave the bananas whole, it can be harder on your blender when making smoothies
You could buy fresh or frozen pineapple to make this smoothie but I find it just as easy to freeze crushed canned pineapple. Just place a plastic storage container with crushed pineapple in the freezer and it will be ready to use within a few hours.
Once your fruit is frozen, you are ready to combine it with a can (12 oz) of 7UP in the blender. Add a few drops of green food dye and blend again to complete the fun St. Patrick’s Day smoothie. This makes two servings and can be doubled depending on the size of your blender.
While bananas are staples in our house, sometimes we run out pretty quick. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to pick up all the necessary St. Patrick’s Day smoothie ingredients including the bananas and 12-pack of 7UP at my neighborhood Walmart store.
Smoothies are naturally a fun breakfast drink but with the addition of the bubbly 7UP, I think this St. Patrick’s Day smoothie would be a fun addition to your St. Patrick’s Day dinner too. Who wouldn’t love corned beef and cabbage with a sweet green smoothie on the side?!
