Green Smoothie with a Little Twist | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand and CSA Provider

Quick Smoothie RecipeStrawberries, ginger, spinach, beets

Here’s a simple recipe that can be mixed up quickly in the blender, or skip the water and throw it in the juicer with great results. It’d be a green drink, but the extra flair of beets make it a lovely deep pink color, and a great source of iron. Add kombucha for a Vitamin B boost with detox benefits!

 

Ingredients:

3 Cups Frozen Couple Berry Farms Strawberries (Use fresh if juicing)

3 Stalks of Celery

1 hunk of ginger (I love ginger! Use a bit less if it’s not your fancy)

1 Handful of Couple Berry Farms greens (baby spinach blends more smoothly, but kale is great, too)

1/4 of a Couple Berry Farms Beet

Filtered Water

 

Optional

Drip of Lemon Juice

One cup kombucha

 

Put all ingredients in except water, using one cup of kombucha and lemon juice if desired. Then fill blender with water to just barely cover contents. Blend on high until smooth. Enjoy!

 

All of these ingredients but the ginger and celery can be found at our free standing Farm Stand  in Vista, or in our weekly CSA boxes. And don’t forget that we’re open Thursday- Friday 1-6 pm and Saturday 9-5pm.

 

Hope to see you soon!
