Craving Life ~ Irish Protein Kiss

I really enjoy the All-Natural Irish Kiss, yet the adage that “there is a time and a place for everything” holds true. I love the All-Natural Irish Kiss when I am tired and need to be energized. In the morning I am awake and ready to work so the All-Natural is not quite what my body craves. It is looking for something that can give it staying power until lunchtime and that’s what I find in the Irish Protein Kiss.

I had a friend over for a taste test of the two Irish green smoothies and her reaction was very similar to mine. Go figure!

Based on the original Keep-It-Simple-Smoothie I posted a while back, the Irish Protein Kiss is all about getting a vibrant all-natural green packed with protein.

Enjoy!
