Skip the “Shamrock Shake” and go green naturally.

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, and my 7 day Spring Detox Cleanse, I give you, the Luck of the Irish Mint-Chip Smoothie! Enjoy:


  • handful of spinach
  • fresh mint 3-4 stems, or 1-2 drops of peppermint extract
  • hemp milk (any nut milk will do)
  • 1 banana
  • coconut butter (for thickness and good fat…you could also use 1/2 avocado)
  • Amazing Grass Chocolate powder or any raw cocoa powder you have
  • cacao nibs (add after you blend the smoothie)

Don’t forget to wear your green

About Caley Alyssa

As a D-1 collegiate athlete with a background in nutrition and anatomy, and an internship with a naturopathic center for healing, Caley Alyssa found herself wanting to help people achieve healthier, happier lives. She quickly came to realize that she wanted to promote preventative and therapeutic methods encouraging active, energetic lifestyles rather than focusing on treatment centered around prescription drugs and the increasingly paramount “band-aid” mindset. In 2006, Caley moved to San Francisco and began to study yoga completing her 200 hour training with Yoga Tree with Janet Stone, Darren Main and Elise Lorimer. From there she went onto study with Shiva Rea and obtained a certification to work with children and at risk youth. In 2010, Caley’s quest to bring health and happiness to others lead her to enroll with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a Holistic Health Coach, registered with the American Drugless Practitioners. Caley now lives in Los Angeles with her husband. She designs and leads seasonal cleanses for individuals, yoga studios and corporate businesses sharing her lifelong journey of finding balance, wellness and happiness in all aspects of life!
