Wild Greens Smoothie

Now this is a healthy smoothie. It’s loaded with bio-photons, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and all the other goodness we know nothing about yet. I picked all these wild greens in my back yard in February, but also see many on my walks in the hills nearby.

As you can see from the pictures it was a huge mound of greens that went into the smoothie, but perhaps only a pound or so by weight. The picture of the greens on the cutting board shows each green and starting at the bottom middle (6 o’clock) and going clockwise, there is:

yellow dock

mizuna

mallow

lovage

chickweed

miner’s lettuce

stinging nettles

dandelion

mint

The base for this smoothie is made up of my old standby:

3 oranges

1 whole lemon

4 bananas

1 small chunk of fresh ginger root

add a little water if needed.

If you can't find enough wild greens then make up the difference with greens from the market. Enjoy this and your good health!

If you’re interested in having a book to take outdoors with you Edible Wild Plants: Wild Foods From Dirt To Plate by John Kallas would be a great place to start.
