Layered Green Pudding
This elegant green smoothie looks and tastes perfect for the holiday season. We served it at our last Joy for Life retreat and it became one of the favorite smoothies.
Put 10 clear glasses on tray.
For the bottom layer:
1 cup blackberries
2 apples, chopped
1 lemon sliced with skin
4 sprigs mint
2 cups water
The liquid in your blender will be thin. Turn your blender on lower speed and add 4 heaping teaspoons psyllium powder while blender is running. Stop the blender and quickly pour into glasses, filling each glass approximately one third.
For the middle Layer:
4 cups spinach (or 1 bunch)
2 ripe bananas
3 oranges (peeled, seeded and sliced)
2 cups water
The liquid in your blender will be thin. Turn your blender on lower speed and add 4 heaping teaspoons psyllium powder while blender is running. Stop the blender and quickly pour into glasses, filling each glass approximately one third, on top of the bottom layer
For the top Layer:
2 cups cranberries
7 large pitted dates
1 ripe banana
2 cups water
The liquid in your blender will be thin. Turn your blender on lower speed and add 4 heaping teaspoons psyllium powder while blender is running. Stop the blender and quickly pour into glasses, over two previous layers. The pudding will solidify in a matter of minutes. Decorate with fresh fruit and greens.
Interesting fact: Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantain a wild-crafted wild edible.
