Two glasses of avocado green smoothie with mint sprig garnish

A Green Smoothie Fit for a Leprechaun

Avocados have been the toast of the town for years—but now you can get your superfood and drink it too.

 Unlike high glycemic Irish Cream liqueur, avocado adds creamy deliciousness and a natural green hue. Plus, the good-for-you fat in avocado really helps keep your blood sugar in check (which will also curb your desire to satiate your hunger with more liquor).
