I really don’t know what the abuela is reaching for…..I know what it’s SHAPED like and therefore, I would put it in a green smoothie.
That’s not to say I whirl all dick-shaped fruits and veggies. I do not. Sometimes, I set them on the counter and laugh at them. But fruits and vegetables are so agreeable, they grow in funny shapes just to amuse us. How can you NOT like them?
So, I’m making a special green smoothie for strangely shaped fruits and veggies:
THE CROOKED BULBOUS GREEN SMOOTHIE
1 stalk celery, with leaves
1 cucumber, washed, halved, seeded and chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 peach halves drizzled with raw honey, preferably grilled with a little char
1 cup greens of your choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Peach flavored dark tea to taste
Put the celery, cucumber and lemon in the blender and pulse until broken down.
Add the peaches, greens, chia and cover with the tea. Blend, adding ice through the top until the desired thickness is reached. Serve.
