I have something healthy for St. Patrick’s day morning. How about a delicious and nutritious Green Pistachio Smoothie that will nourish and energize you in preparation for the fun-filled day? Combine fresh spinach or kale, banana, and almond milk in a blender; top it off with Pistachio Chewy Bites (one of my kid’s favorite healthy snacks). Pistachio Chewy Bites are heart-healthy, 100% all natural, gluten and dairy free, low in sodium. They have a great balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat for sustainable energy with 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and healthy fat. They add a tasty crunch on top of this smoothie recipe.
Thank you to Certified Nutritional Health Counselor, Sara Siskind for sharing this recipe with me!
