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.

1 cup green kale

½ cup strawberries (or berry of choice)

1 small peach or other citrus fruit

3-4 cubes ice

1/2-1 cup water

2-3 Tbsp of ground flax or chia seeds

Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!
