15 Jul Weed smoothie
Julia Sich from Julia’s Edible Weeds came along in June to The Smoothie Club, Mt Maunganui. She brought along with her a huge basket of edible goodness like plantain and cleavers. Light shone out of her eyes as she passionately explained to us why weeds are so incredibly wonderful: “Just plants growing in the wrong place,” Julia says.
So here we have a glorious flavoursome smoothie, Julia’s very own recipe. “The sauerkraut brings out the flavours,” she says… and we had to agree, it was pretty darn tasty.
- 1 green apple
- 2 large handfuls of edible weeds such as plantain, cleavers, chickweed, violet leaves & nettle
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 banana
- 1 avocado
- 1 tbsp sauerkraut (weed or other)
- 1 1/2 cups water
Wash your ingredients. Chop everything up to your blender’s required size. Blend away.
Sip and enjoy x
