I love to eat what’s in season but come the end of winter and before the berries are out in late spring, the fresh fruit selection gets sparse. So, it’s been a lot of oranges for us this time of year. I eat a version of this drink almost every day with my lunch. The greens are pretty much undetectable so it’s perfect for kids too. If you are new to adding greens into your life just add a little at first and work your way up as you get used to them.
Serves 1 or 2
1 Orange peeled
1 handful of spinach or other green leafy like chard, collard leaves or kale (keep in mind those greens have a more pronounced flavour, so if you’re not used to them, start with spinach)
1 or 2 pitted dates (for sweetness) I like medjool dates.
About 2 cups of non-dairy milk (I use unsweetened almond) or water
2 ice cubes
Blend until very smooth. I have a Blendtec high speed blender so I just press the ‘whole juice’ button.
New recipe up on the blog... A bit of a Mexican twist on an old favourite. I promise it is delicious. ow.ly/2bwsUt
