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 Tatsoi Bok Choi or Chard
And some: Arugula Moroccan Mix Green Sorrel Red Veined Sorrel or Tendril Pea Shoots Then add: Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt Extra Firm Tofu Unsweetened Coconut Milk A chunk of fresh ginger 1 teaspoon of ground Tumeric Fresh Parsley Lemon - peel the skin but leave the pith (white part) Celery Blend enough to make room for some fruit: Banana Orange (with the pith) Granny Smith Apple Cantaloupe Honeydew Blueberries Strawberries Raspberries Mango Pineapple Maybe some carrot, too. Blend until your desired smoothness. Cheers! #smoothie #kale #tatsoi #bokchoi #chard #arugula #moroccanmix #greensorrel #reveinedsorrel #tendrilpeashoots
