Emerald Gemini Smoothie

I’m in a state of shock, relief, panic and excitement because May has arrived. For me, this means an entire flux of things – I’m graduating college in less than a month. I’m less than a month away from turning 22. I’m less than a month away from apartment hunting in NYC and starting an awesome full-time job. But also, it’s my birth month. 😉

My fellow fun-loving, multi-tasking, outgoing geminis will tell you all about how important our birthdays are to us. In fact, they’ll find any excuse to – especially if they can sense you’re a gemini as well. This is actually how I met one of my best friends my freshman year of college – she noticed I was wearing an emerald ring and asked when my birthday was. Turns out, we were born less than a day apart.

All astrological serendipity aside – this smoothie is just as delicious as it looks. The sweetness of the fruit balances out the not-as-pleasing taste of nutrient-packed spirulina, which gives it an extra dose of protein as well.
