At Thrive HQ, we love the idea of eating green foods on St. Patrick’s Day, as long as food dyes aren’t involved. There are plenty of naturally green—and nutritious!—options available, and our dairy-free mint-coconut shake is a perfect example. Fresh spinach, avocado, and mint give this creamy frozen drink its verdant hue—and the refreshing flavor seems just right for welcoming spring.
