Other than the very best of local food, one of my favorite things about the farmers' markets is exchanging recipe ideas! I've had several requests for this one, although I hesitate to call it a "recipe," as it's more of a guideline.
You don't need a fancy blender to make a great smoothie! Mine is an ancient Osterizer that was a hand-me-down. It can make two 16 ounce servings, enough to get us through until lunch. I prep just about everything after market and grocery shopping then store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for easy access. From start to clean up usually takes about ten minutes to make two smoothies.
I always start with half a blender full of greens (stems and all):
Kale TatsoiBok Choi orChard
And some:ArugulaMoroccan MixGreen SorrelRed Veined Sorrel orTendril Pea ShootsThen add:Lowfat Plain Greek YogurtExtra Firm TofuUnsweetened Coconut MilkA chunk of fresh ginger1 teaspoon of ground TumericFresh ParsleyLemon - peel the skin but leave the pith (white part)CeleryBlend enough to make room for some fruit:BananaOrange (with the pith)Granny Smith Apple CantaloupeHoneydewBlueberriesStrawberriesRaspberriesMangoPineappleMaybe some carrot, too.Blend until your desired smoothness.Cheers!#smoothie#kale#tatsoi#bokchoi#chard#arugula#moroccanmix#greensorrel#reveinedsorrel#tendrilpeashoots
