Galway Green Smoothie

One of my regrets from my time abroad was not going to Ireland. Sure – I’m not even Irish, but I do find their culture fun and fascinating. The closest I got to the gorgeous green rolling hills was meeting a group of friends in Barcelona, who were from a small rural town in Ireland… and by listening to Ed Sheeran’s new song “Galway Girl,” of course. This smoothie is a vibrant green that will brighten up any day – and is the perfect way to pack in extra protein before starting a round of drinks on the 17th. 😉

Please note that many times my smoothies will include different protein powders in them – this is because I usually drink a smoothie or protein shake after working out because it helps with muscle recovery and hunger cravings. Adding protein to your smoothie or breakfast shake is a great addition to your breakfast or snack, but by no means is it essential! The smoothie below will taste just as yummy without the protein powder, no worries!
