Keep those nasty winter colds away with this antioxidant- and phytonutrient-rich smoothie. Dandelion greens are loaded with calcium, iron and they are great for detoxing the liver. Power it up with banana (potassium) and hemp seeds (EFAs), too.
Try to buy everything organic. Here’s why.
5-7 stems of dandelion greens
1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 handful of sweet pea sprouts
1 handful of mixed greens
2 1/2 cups coconut water (or pure water)
1-2 tsp raw, wild-harvested honey
1/2 banana (optional)
2 tsp hemp seeds (optional)
*You can sub any sweet sprouts that you like for sweet pea sprouts. If you can’t find dandelion greens, just use any greens you like.
Let’s get started.
Pack your blender and mix until smooth. Enjoy!
Note: Dandelion greens can be a tad bitter, so if you like, give them a quick steam (1-2 minutes) to curb any bitterness, and then cool in the fridge before you blend them up. You can also add extra honey or banana.
