Lately I have taken to harvesting the dandelion greens from my lawn and making green smoothies. I wash them, mix them in the blender with a cup of water, fresh carrots from my garden, a whole ripe banana, six large frozen strawberries and a third cup of frozen blueberries, some type of sweetener like agave and sometimes protein powder. It makes a delicious, healthy and filling shake.
Yard Snacker got me to thinking about harvesting them from my own back yard.
I never thought I would ever hear myself say anything like that last paragraph, let alone write it. I find myself no longer craving chocolate or anything sweet when I have had one of these. So many vitamins and minerals involved. And I have started to lose weight! What a fun side effect! But it is true. How weird is that?
And what a great way to combat dandelions in the yard? Eat them!
