“What you find in season at the spring market will vary based on where you live,”says Kristine Miles, author of The Green Smoothie Bible. “In more moderate climates, such as where I live in Southern Australia, many of these fruits will be readily available, while others may be very hard to find. Use this opportunity to experiment with what is fresh to create your own green smoothies.”
- 1 cup cranberries
- 1 orange, peeled
- Zest of ½ orange
- 1 ½ cups orange juice
- 2 ½ cups watermelon
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 lime, peeled
Tip: If you’re new to green smoothies, Miles recommends that only 10 percent of your smoothie be greens (spinach is a good beginner’s green because of its mild flavor) and gradually increase them to 40 percent as you grow accustomed to the taste.
