I don’t grow much in my garden. but I still find some ingredients for the smoothies I make every morning for me and my family.
Rhubarb and Sorrel Smoothie
My son and I were the only ones at home this morning, so this is about half of what I use on a normal day.
I use young rhubarb stalks, the tend to get tough pretty fast. The sorrel grows all over my garden and I like to use a little bit of mint, but not too much, it can be a bit overpowering.
First I blend a fistful of almonds with about 4dl of water (to make my own almond milk). I chop the almonds a bit first, to spare the blender and then I blend them as much as possible. Some frozen berries go into the mix (this is best cold), a banana and perhaps a pear or an apple.
I love to use some homegrown things for breakfast, I think its healthy and besides, it’s free!
My hardworking, clever, talented and beautiful girl is graduating today with a Bachelors degree in nutritional science from the university of Iceland.
Sadly I cannot be with her to celebrate. My back has not recovered enough from the fall last weekend to sit for hours in a car (I’m much better though). But her father and sister went to represent the family. I’m sure they are having a great time, and they will tell me all about it when they get back.
