st patrick's day green x2

yesterday was st. patrick's day
which has always seemed to be an interesting 'holiday' to me
some people seem to go all out - green hair, green clothes, big green themed party...
and others...not so much

my family never really celebrated it growing up
in fact, i remember going to school those first couple years after moving to the states
and thinking what a coincidence it was that nearly every once in my class wore green on the same day 
what are the odds? i would think to myself
and why are these green-clad classmates of mine pinching those of us who didn't get the memo?
i eventually figured out what was going on
and started wearing something green on the day, just for fun
but that's about as much as i participate...and my family thinks i'm strange for even doing that!

ironically, i had a green smoothie for breakfast today
and thought to myself: 
darn - shoulda thought of this yesterday, then i could have put a st. patty's day post on the blog!
but then i figured, why not share it a day late - it's what all the cool kids are doing, right?
...ok, maybe not, but it's what i'm doing

i should note that i was feeling pretty lazy when i made this
which means this recipe is as simple as it gets:
3 ingredients, 1 step - easy, peasy

lazy day hemp protein green smoothie

- 1/2 to 3/4 cup mighty mango naked juice
(maybe this is cheating, but it was in my fridge so i used it!)

- 1 big fistful of organic baby spinach

- 2 tbsp raw shelled hemp seeds
(you could probably bump this up to 3 if you want, i only did 2 because i had some coconut coffee already and i figured the fat from that would fill me up a little bit)

- blend ingredients together and pour into a glass

oh, and if you want to see even more green, 
check out this picture from a recent newborn session i did with my sweet niece:
