To say that these Shamrock Smoothies are delicious is not an exaggeration by any stretch...scrumptious perhaps would be appropriate in describing them.
I jazzed up the original recipe that was in a Midwest Living magazine.
Preparing the smoothies doesn't take long and believe me you will be so pleased that you made them...refreshing to say the least!
1 banana, sliced in 1" chunks
6 Kiwi, peeled and quartered
Place the above prepared fruit on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for approximately 4 hours.
In a blender, combine:
1 cup green grapes, seedless
6 oz. Key Lime yogurt (Yoplait)
1 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp. honey
4 -5 Tbsp. Rum, if desired
1/2 of the frozen fruit
Blend well and then continue adding the remainder of the fruit, blending well after each addition.
I added a few drops of green food coloring and that brightened the mixture beautifully!
Pour into desired vessels and top with whipped cream and a slice of Kiwi or fresh mint and you have a St. Patrick's Day treat!
