Yessssssss it’s that time of year again! The wild greens are sprouting up left, right and centre and I’m going wild green mental with my smoothies. Whilst green smoothies give you a buzz, wild green smoothies take you to a whole other dimension baby! Here was today’s recipe:
Wild Wild Life
3 sticks celery
1 cup blueberries
3 handfuls wild greens (dandelion leaves, sorrel and ground elder)
1 handful spinach
2 sprigs mint
*Adding lime to green smoothies really sexifies them!
Here are some pics of the wild greens but for goodness sake get an actual identification book and don’t go out picking things if you aren’t 100% sure what they are 🙂
This is ground elder. It grows like a bastard pretty much EVERYWHERE! Gardeners hate it cos it’s hard to get rid of and because they’re stupid and don’t realise they can eat it 🙂 Go for the young shoots, they are bright and shiny and green (like me).
This is dandelion. EVERYONE knows what dandelions look like. Some of the leaves are jaggy, some are quite round and smooth – it all depends on the age of the plant. Bit like humans really…
This is sorrel. It grows in big clumpy bits and has a leaves with two sharp points at the end, like a shield almost… It’s lemony and very tasty. It’ll grow in the middle of fields or random places…
I’m off to London tomorrow and then Berlin for a few days so it’ll be all quiet on the blog front. Have amazing fun xx
