  3. Serve immediately.

  10. Strawberry Beet: Milk, avocado, strawberries, raw beets (or leftover cooked), maple syrup

TIPS

If you can freeze the greens ahead of time, the finished product will taste much less “green” but will have the same nutrition. Just make sure the greens are dry, then put them into a zip top freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

You can use raw cauliflower, zucchini, beets, and summer squash. (Or you can freeze those raw veggies and add them frozen.)

You can add fully cooked and cooled sweet potato, butternut squash, and beets. (Any kind work, even leftover puree, as long as it’s not seasoned or salted.)

Blend really (really!) well to get a very smooth consistency, adding a little more milk (or even water) as needed to thin.
