In this Issue..Green Smoothie with Stinging Nettles
Update on Sergei's Kickstarter Project
|Serving Size: 1 cup (89g or 3.1 oz)|
On this photo you may see nettles growing in our yard. Prior to last summer we were unsuccessful, trying to grow nettles from seeds. Last summer Valya bought two small stinging nettle plants at the farmers market and planted them in our garden. Now they are producing abundantly.
Today my family is living on green smoothies made out of nettles, mangos and water. The recipe is depicted on the next photo.
Often people ask if nettle smoothie stings. No, it doesn't. You may use gloves or a plastic bag to pick nettles. You can also use scissors to cut them right into the blender. As soon as you blend them they don't sting any more.
Nettle smoothie is fragrant and refreshing. We hope you can find a patch of nettles too and join us for a cup of green goodness.
