Today I take some of my morning time to share a one of my smoothie recipes (I take at least 3 banana smoothies per day). If you have a chance to go to Nature and forage some wild greens to put them into your smoothies, do it! Just be careful to choose some mild tasting and above all edible greens. Your smoothie, even if wild, should always be a pleasure to drink!
But voilà, my Recipe:
It's almost first may... We still have some morning frostings this year... But hopefully sun is back there :)
What I ate today? Raw Vegan and Low Fat?
Please join me at the table :)
In the morning I drunk 600ml of warm water. Then before my elliptical bike session, I made some green juice for both of us. I'm not absolutely juice person, we found that whole food is always better, but at this time of a year we have lots of greens on the market: carrot tops, kohlrabi leaves, beetroot greens, etc... They sell all spring vegetables with their leaves, so I'm using them in the juice. It's packed with nutrition and easy to prepare with a high speed juicer (slow juicers don't manage hard stems as well, carrot tops for example). I was using a Slow Star juicer for many years and it's the best vertical, I've ever used, but then I wanted to try the difference with a good high speed juicer. I got some small and easy-clean Phillips and it's WONDERFUL! No more cutting, no more pushing, etc... For green juices it's excellent. For fruit juices, which I don't recommend anyway, it's better to use vertical slow juicer.
My Green Juice
INGREDIENTS (almost 700ml of juice):
1/2 English cucumber (the long ones),
1 green apple,
1 thick slice of lemon,
1 huge bunch of kohlrabi greens,
1 bunch of celery stalks with leaves
Push everything through you juicer and enjoy!
We shared the juice together.
As you probably already know, we are on a raw vegan and mostly fruitarian diet. However there is not so much variety of fruit in early spring and early summer period which makes me develop more creativity having almost the same fruit every day. So at the moment we have bananas from our local organic store and oranges that I ordered from Spain. Occasionally we get a few mangoes or papayas or longans from an Asian store, tropical fruit here is very expensive so it's just a treat for us. This week however we got some excellent blueberries from biocoop. I love good blueberries, big, juicy and sweet. What's more, it's still quite cold here (5-6°C at night and maybe 12-14°C during the day...) and some warm food is very nice to have for lunch... From all that reasons this soup was born...
