This recipe comes from CSA member Claire, who says: “The other day I noticed you were looking for a good green smoothie recipe. Here is one I make a lot and find refreshing.”
Claire's Green Smoothie
- lots of greens (kale, spinach, or any greens besides mustard green, bok choy, and arugula)
- a good handful curly leaf parsley
- a good chunk cucumber (about 3 inches)
- 4-8 fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup orange juice (depends on quantity of other ingredients and your blending machine of choice)
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Claire's notes: "Best a bit chilled. Quantities aren't exact because I have never measured them - I just throw in handfuls. Adjust all of them to taste. Sometimes if there is room I include a fruit like a pear or a kiwi or half of an apple. Kiwi is my favourite. Am sure lime juice would be a good addition too."
