Shamrock Smoothie

Getting ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Start the day off with a Shamrock shake. Some studies suggest that a type of nutrient known as anthocyanins may be beneficial for people with Parkinson’s. Anthocyanins are found in fruits and vegetables, especially dark leafy greens and berries, which are the main ingredients in the Shamrock shake.

Shamrock Smoothie

1 cup green kale
½ cup strawberries (you can also mix in other berries if they’re available!)
1 small peach or other citrus fruit
3-4 cubes ice (if you want to have a thicker consistency, otherwise you can omit)
1/2-1cup water
2-3 tbsp of ground flax or chia seeds to add a dose of healthy fats</br/>

Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!
