a tart drink, with all the fiber from the greens leftover. i find that green smoothies are a little too sweet for me and i don’t get much green “mileage” out of them. the play between the tart citrus and the sweet apple in this covers up the bitterness of the greens nicely. and a bonus is that it turns into a kind of frappe when you make it with spinach. ENJOY!
I made this last night as I have many organic yams and nothing to do with them to have for lunch today at work, just finished and WOW! I did not expect it to be so good!!
I made a sweet basil dressing inspired by Bonobo’s, I did not write it down or have exact amounts, i made it to taste, pretty much winged it. I found this one by Dr. Ben Kim which is similiar (i used much less oil and more water in my version, no pepper, agave instead of honey and i am certain Bononbo’s doesn’t contain garlic but i added a little to mine):
I would’ve never dreamed these could taste so amazing…they are supremely addicting! Plus, it’s a super way to greens into your diet. I could eat 3-4 bunches of kale straight this way! This is also a great movie snack or to make with kids!
