Happy early St. Patrick’s Day!
Yes, I’m well aware that this smoothie has absolutely nothing to do with anything green, Irish, or Bailey’s, but I feel like this would be a good start to your day tomorrow! You know, since you’ll be eating all those starchy potatoes and drinking all that carb-packed Guinness tomorrow night. Or afternoon, if you’re so inclined.
It’s a healthy, smoothie version of one of my favorite cocktails, and it’s guaranteed to bring about daydreams of cruise ships, Calypso music, and sunshine on your shoulders, even without the rum!
Which, I have to say, wouldn’t be a terrible way to celebrate good ol’ St. Patty, kicking back in a lounge chair, dozing off and getting a tan…
Wishful thinking. Just be safe folks, and drop by My Cooking Spot and pick up my Strawberry Pina Colada Smoothie recipe.
If you really want to get in the spirit, you could always dye it green!

Smoothies are among my favorite things and this one looks luscious! Thanks for the Target giveaway, who wouldn’t love to win $$ to spend at Target!
It’s healthy and healthy is almost like being green…..because you eat a lot of green things so I say this will go well with St. Patty’s day lol. I will be checking this out because I love to try out new smoothies
I’m a smoothie lover and I’m kinda glad it’s not green. If I see another unnaturally green food item . . . 🙂 I love the colors and I’m going to take you up on the offer of daydreaming about lying on the beach soaking up some rays.
I totally hear you, Alli! Glad the green dye will be packed up for another year, lol.

That looks yummy! Can I make it unhealthy and add spirits? 🙂
I would NOT blame you for adding some rum to this baby! 🙂 It IS St. Patty’s after all!

Yummy. I love smoothie recipes. They are a great go-to snack or meal replacement.
This looks so delish. It’s good to see something not GREEN on a blog during this time. 🙂
We are big smoothie fans here and that looks so delicious! Green smoothies have become our favorite breakfast and sometimes a berry smoothie for dessert 🙂
Wow! These look amazing. I could for one of these right now.

It’s still fairly chilly up here in Michigan, but I could really go for one of those right now. Spring is on the way, the snow is melting and that makes me happy!
