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.

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