Lucky Green Oat Milk Smoothie
Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day quite like the color green! While we love getting festive for the holidays, sometimes we want to fit something in that is also nutritious. This green smoothie created by Kate Daugherty, co-founder of The Facility Denver, brings the best of both worlds!
A glass of green gold
This clean smoothie will leave you feeling lucky, full, and refreshed! One of our favorite things about smoothies is that they fill us up without feeling sluggish. This recipe incorporates flaxseed and hemp seeds which are both packed with protein and omega 3 fats. Flaxseed, hempseed, and Willa’s Oat Milk are also all great sources of fiber to help keep you feeling full for longer.

St. Patrick’s Day treat
Did we mention that this smoothie is also sugar-free, high-protein, and nutrient-dense!? It’s a St. Patrick’s Day treat you can feel good about eating any time of the day. Make it for breakfast to kick off the holiday or try it as an afternoon pick-me-up snack. It’s two servings so you can even share it with a friend or family member (or cut it in half for just a single serving). If you have any kiddos around this lucky smoothie is a great way to sneak some extra veggies into their breakfast or after-school snack!
