Cooling Green

Heat wave! We’re expecting over 100 degrees here in Washington, DC, so I started the day with a favorite smoothie I call “Light & Lovely”, a combination of frozen pineapple, a frozen banana, a small head of organic butter lettuce and some parsley sprigs from the farm market. I used coconut water for extra electrolytes and threw in a black mission fig that was handy.

Very cool!

ps- Couldn’t resist sneaking the green heirloom tomato into the photo, and a bit of a fern frond from our garden… the greens of summer!
