Just a quick word to you all on this (in Philly) miserable, snowy and decidedly not green St. Patrick’s Day. While the Philly St. Patrick’s Day tradition is to wear green and drink way too much green beer for at least two weekends surrounding the holiday, my tradition is a tad different. I drink a green smoothie for breakfast (much like every other day), enjoy Alexis’ decadent, healthy collard wraps filled with mashed hummus and avocado for lunch, and in the afternoon, I offer myself a special treat: foamy, green kombucha!
It’s a simple and beautiful thing to make and if you really want to do it right, drink it from one of the new green jars.
May you have the luck of the Irish, today and everyday! To your health!
GREEN KOMBUCHA RECIPE
- 3 cups kombucha tea, preferably made with sencha or another green tea
- 1/2 cup kale, packed
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, packed
- Put all ingredients into your blender, Vitamix or food processor.
- If using a blender or food processor, blend on high for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. If using a Vitamix, slowly turn the speed knob to maximum and let blend for 30-1 minute.
