Welcome to the second installment of Smoothies with Style! I’m really having fun developing recipes AND color combinations with this new series. I’ve also started a #smoothieswithstyle hashtag on Instagram so you can share your beauteous smoothie creations too. (Who knows, maaaaybe just maybe I’ll feature yours! But you gotta tag them so I can see ’em!)
I’ll let you in on a little secret: Daisy petals are completely edible–sorry Doris Day. Don’t tell me you don’t think that’s crazy ’cause I know you do. (I did when I first found out!) Daisy petals are closely related to artichokes and are high in Vitamin C. They also help relieve headaches! I plucked a few daisies from a patch near my house and put ’em in a smoothie.
PLEASE EAT THE DAISIES SMOOTHIE
(makes one 16 oz serving)
3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1 large frozen banana
Petals of 2-3 daisies (not too many because they are bitter!)
1/4-1/2 cup parsley (depending on how strong ya like it)
1/2 cup water
1. Place all ingredients in high speed blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Drink it all down!
**Optional: Get fancy and add a daisy for garnish. These would make such a cute addition to a brunch party if you put them in small juice glasses and garnished each one with a daisy.
