Green smoothie — on the wild side

Bittercress smoothieThis is so cool . . .  I have been reading about adding foraged greens to a blended drink.  So I tried it out.  I found a nicely sized bittercress plant in the yard.  After picking the plant and removing its lower leaves, I added it to the blender with a large handful of soaked Brazil nuts, a banana, two dates, some water and lots of ice cubes.  Then, blended together and . . .  voila!

Bittercress smoothieIt tastes marvelous.  There’s not even a “taste” of green to it.  Just the right amount of sweetness, nuttiness and knowing that I’ve done something really good for myself.
