My Spin on Green Smoothies
Most of the green smoothies I hear about frankly sound disgusting. A whole blender full of chard with maybe an apple chunk thrown in or a handful of raw cashews. Ok, they sound healthy and spartan and full of virtuousness, but not very tasty. I also don’t want to be eating a ton of the kinds of raw greens that are so high in oxalic acid that i can’t absorb all the good minerals in my food either. My solution is to add a handful of really nutritious super-greens to my regular smoothie recipe. I’m thrilled to be growing my own greens this spring, so it’s super easy to pick parsley, dill, mustard, leaf lettuce and a little red russian kale leaves to add to my morning smoothie. I’m getting a whole-food vitamin and mineral boost plus the probiotics, calcium, protein, good fats and creaminess of kefir.
