With the arrival of summer, comes (one hopes) fewer nights of using the oven, and more time outside. Why not make your day more refreshing by having a smoothie. Mmmm smoothies.
Last fall, I posted this POM smoothie recipe, and recently I was lucky enough to receive more juice. More concoctions are in the works, let me tell you. Smoothies are always a great place to start. This one has some surprise ingredients due to our local CSA box, and our efforts to add more Omega 3s to our diet. And you can't go wrong with POM. The health benefits are incredible. So go to the grocery store now and get some!
POM Strawberry Mango Smoothie
1 basket of strawberries (1 pint +...I think ours was bigger)
1 Cup frozen mango chunks
12 oz. POM Wonderful Juice
2 baby bok choy bunches (surprise!)
1/4 Cup flax seed (optional) (we use roasted..gives a nutty taste)
Wash strawberries then toss in the blender (no need to hull or even chop off the leaves, it all blends). Wash bok choy leaves and chop off about an inch from the edge. Blend all ingredients in the blender to the desired consistency.
1. If you don't have bok choy, two handfuls of fresh spinach will work. You can't even taste it.
2. Flax see is totally optional. Some people might not go for this, but it helps your system, and we like the taste.
