It Is here – Happy First Day of Spring Everybody!
What a relief, I mean eventually, now we can enjoy the longer days + hot breeze. To celebrate I have mixed up one of my favorite spring greens, sorrel together with its buddy lemon and some other superfoods.
I posted some gorgeous red sorrel on my Instagram page last week and you guys loved it up, so I know I have some sorrel fans out there! Sorrel has a remarkably bright and citrusy flavor, it’s ideal for salads, smoothies, and juices.
You can find sorrel at your local farmers’ markets, in your CSA boxes and if you are lucky at the grocer. If you have never used sorrel before, keep your eye out for this, because as soon as you’ve got your first taste you will fall in love, I guarantee.
LEMONY GREEN SORREL SMOOTHIE
This makes one perfect smoothie serving.
2 cups *sorrel, I used the two green + red sorrel, any variety will do
Juice + zest of 1/2 lemon
1 cup of liquid, I used 1/2 cup almond milk + 1/2 cup filtered water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
the handful of ice
Blend all of the ingredients until they’re smooth; sip, enjoy + relax.
You do not want a fancy blender to make delicious smoothies, I made this recipe in my Bella Blender.
