Tropical because of the fruit. Suburban Summer, because the blended greens give the refreshing smell of freshly cut grass in the summer in the ‘burbs. (I don’t ever get that aroma in the city!)
I have been experimenting with green smoothies, and trying to move past just using spinach. At Trader Joe’s I found in a bag, already washed and cut, ready to use “Southern Greens” that includes collard greens, turnip greens, mustard greens, and spinach. I also got a variety of organic frozen fruit… makes smoothies quick and easy!!

A friend of ours made a cooked version of this dish and we really loved it, so we made a raw version of it. This recipe is best made with thin zoodles, but if you don’t have a spirooli, you can use julienned zucchini. The mint must be fresh.
Optional: Cilantro. I think it tastes better without it or with a couple tablespoons.
Optional: Peanuts. I usually make mine without nuts.
