Mint Jalapeno

Mint Jalapeno Green Smoothie

There were some ripe ingredients ready to be used we decided to make a smoothie. There was also some fresh mint and some jalapeno peppers that seemed like they would make an interesting flavor. So basically start out by washing and cutting the fruit and vegetables beforehand. Add the chopped veggies, fruit, and seeds, blend, then add the greens and blend more until smooth. Pour and enjoy. Many of these ingredients were available at our local farmers market!

So here is the basic smoothie recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 small jalapeno
  • 1 pluot or other fruit
  • ½to 1 cup of grapes (green or champagne or any kind…)
  • ½ to 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 3 to 6 mint leaves
  • 1 handful of dandelion greens (freshly picked from our back yard)
  • ~2 to 4 pieces of swiss chard or any other green
  • ~1 Tbs Hemp seeds
  • ~½ Tbsp Chia seeds
  • ~½ Tbsp Spirulina powder
  • 1 to 2 cups of water (add until you get desired consistency)
