This Saint Patrick’s Day and just about always, we’re embracing all things green at Wondercide. For all of us, green is a symbol of the wisdom of nature and abundant vitality. Green reminds us how important it is to take care of ourselves so we can be healthy and keep doing good things in the world. In honor of the holiday that’s all about green, we’re celebrating with the creation of healthy and festive drinks.

Since spring is the time for nature to do its green cleaning with the brightening of the grass and newly-grown plants, why not do the same with our minds and bodies? So, join us in greening up the day with a healthy smoothie recipe to keep our bodies and brains ahead of the curve.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: Greens? Yuck! Just hear us out because you’ve never had a green smoothie like this before. This drink will likely cure your preconceived notions about green juices, smoothies, and beverages across the board. You’ll feel healthy, refreshed, and high-spirited.


  • 3 large kale leaves (stems removed)
  • 1 small cucumber or 1/2 large cucumber (skin on for nutrients)
  • 1 cup almond milk (either plain or vanilla)
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

Healthful ingredients in a blender before mixing for a green smoothie recipe

Once you’ve assembled your in-green-dients, all you have to do is drop them all in a blender and blend until it’s reached a consistency you desire. Pour into a cup and enjoy! If you’re wondering why these ingredients are so significant, let us explain. It’s just as important to understand why something is healthy as it is to know what is good for you.


Kale is good for the heart and contains lots of healthy fiber and potassium.


Cucumber is as low in calories as it is high in nutrients and antioxidants.

Almond milk.

Almond milk provides a healthy dairy-free richness to the mix which may also boost your antioxidants and may improve bone health. Make it fresh or find it without the preservatives. 


Celery has been said to improve memory and learning ability.


Mint leaves have been speculated to also help lessen digestive issues.


And last but not least, pineapple adds in some healthy fiber-rich sugars to turn this tornado of nutrition into a flavor-packed mouthful of goodness with its vitamin C. It may even help boost immunity.
