I wanted a smoothie this morning that would give me a kickstart, so I gathered up spicy, tingly, hot, and tangy ingredients, along with a banana and yogurt to balance it all out. I also topped it off with a passionfruit, because I’m crazy for passionfruit and they’re ripe in the yard this time of year.

Micronutrient-rich, zesty, and pretty delicious, too.

Osaka purple mustard greens

French sorrel–high in vitamin C (watch out if prone to kidney disorders because of high oxalic acid levels)

Spilanthes (“antiinflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic, antiplatelet aggregation, antidiabetic, hypotensive, neuroprotective, cardiovascular, antiviral, anticancer and chemoprotective effects.”)

Tulsi

Fig

Ginger

Lemon (vitamin C and alkalizing effect)

Banana

Whole Milk Yogurt

I added enough orange juice to allow the blender to blend.

It definitely packed a wallop, especially the ginger.

I had an egg on the side for protein and hopefully this will get me through the rest of the morning.

Do you like green smoothies? What are your favorite add-ins?

Love passion fruit. In Sri Lanka we get a passion fruit cordial which is very nice. I had not idea passion fruits grow in the US.

Smoothies are not a favorite, especially green smoothies. Maybe as a detox after a night of heavy drinking but since I rarely drink, this is not an issue. But if I had to add anything it would Ceylon Cinnamon of course:-)
