Creamsicle Burdock Smoothie
This sounds weird…but it’s really good! Especially if you want to get the liver and blood purifying properties of both burdock and turmeric. The orange taste complements the burdock root really nicely—so if you don’t love the taste of burdock this is a good way to get it! Thanks to Lucy for her suggestion of how to make burdock root juice without a juicer! Enjoy.
1 orange, quartered
1 frozen banana
½ cup burdock root juice
2 thumb-sized pieces of turmeric
I made the burdock root juice by blending burdock root with some water and then straining it through cheesecloth. Then, basically just through everything into the blender along with the juice! The burdock root juice should be enough liquid to make a creamy smoothie. Mix as needed.
