Zephyr Farm – Co-op La Maison Verte – Radish Top & Lemon Smoothie

Print Friendly

What do you usually do with the green leaves attached to the radishes you buy?   You probably throw them out, but did you know they are loaded with nutrition? They can be used in smoothies or even salads.

So save those radish tops!  We throw out the greens from a lot of the vegetables we buy and this is a huge mistake. Those green leaves are extremely valuable sources of nutrients. The greens from vegetables are actually higher in many nutrients than the vegetables themselves, and lower in sugar. So next time you see some carrots, beets, radishes, or even turnips with the green leaves still attached, be sure to pick some up and use the greens.  Just be sure  to rince them thorougly, or try to buy organic if you can.

Print Friendly

Posting live from Moksha NDG. Green smoothies for everyone who comes out of class this evening made by Nat and myself.

Today is the first day of Living Your Moksha. 7 Weeks, 7 Challenges to inspire your life.

The first week is Be Heatlhy. Which is why Nat, Raquel, and I decided to make 40 litres of smoothie today to kick off the challenge.

For those of you in the middle of the 30 day Moksha challenge this smoothie will rejuvenate you and boost your energy and immune system.

The smoothie features banana, strawberry, swiss chard, lemon, and ginger.  It’s great to see so many people who have never tried a green smoothie before giving them a try.

Going to go give out some more green smoothies now. More pictures and videos to come later from the evening here at Moksha NDG.

Living Your Moksha Be Healthy Smoothie

1 large banana
150 g strawberries (about 6-8 medium)
160 g swiss chard (about 2 leaves)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 cups of water
a little piece of fresh ginger (peeled)

Put all the ingredients in an upright blender and blend until smooth.

Remember you can adjust the proportions to your taste. Feel free to start with more fruit or if your daring more ginger or swiss chard.

Enjoy in the morning for breakfast or after an awesome yoga class.

Fennel Lime Strawberry Smoothie

Print Friendly

Tangy. Sweet. Refreshing. Thirst quenching. Those are the words that come to mind when I drink this fennel lime strawberry smoothie.

It also makes me think of summer even though it’s not very warm in Montreal right now.  It’s actually really cold for April 28th.

Although it’s cold out, it is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier. I am sitting in my kitchen, as the sun shines through the windows, and evening begins to set in, sipping on my smoothie, writing this post and listening to music.  Warm days are ahead. Days where a refreshing smoothie like this one will be just perfect.
