Green Drinks for St. Patty’s Day – Healthy Options with Juicing


St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner and green drinks are a great way to celebrate. Even if you don’t want to partake in alcoholic beverages, you can find fun and healthy, non-alcoholic green drinks for St. Patty’s Day that you can enjoy at home or with friends. Consider these healthful green drinks as a fruity supplement to your diet these next few days and especially on St. Patrick’s Day.

You won’t need food coloring to decorate these green drinks. The natural and healthy combination of ingredients lets you feel good about your beverage of choice, which gives you ample servings of fruits and vegetables in one glass. Juicing is a great way to get your nutrients without the preservatives you will find in most bottled drinks. Because juicing extracts the nutrients in greater quantities than the fruits and veggies themselves, you are able to consume more vitamins and healthy nutrients in one sitting.
